He is joined by his wife Chrissie and their youngest daughter. Expect to see our Rector travelling between our churches in the Lower Ouse Valley on his 750cc motorbike. Having worked through a very long Vacancy without a Priest-in-Charge, we are all looking forward to welcoming him to the Benefice.

Rev Joe Chipper’s first Sunday services will be on Sunday, July 28. For details of all the services in the Benefice please see the Kingston News, the Parish Magazine or the Village noticeboards..
