Almost four years ago, I arrived as a curate (and as a single bloke!) in west Worcestershire. On Sunday evening, Jen & I had our final leaving event, and on Tuesday the removals men arrived and we departed for Somerset.
There are many things that I’ll miss about Worcestershire, and it’s difficult to pick out particular events… but I’ll have especially good memories of the cafe churches, the discipleship group and the youth group. Working with David Sherwin (‘the rabbi’) has been a real pleasure – not least because of his irrepressible good humour and generosity of spirit. I also greatly valued our friendly neighbours in Wichenford. (It’s also difficult picking out representative photos from the past couple of weeks – partly because I took none at the final one!)
We arrived in Somerset on Tuesday evening and have been unpacking boxes since then! This nearby roadsign seems symbolic, as it has five of the villages in the Polden Wheel parish being represented (the missing one is Ashcott, which is further east, and Cossington is part of another group).
