New Rector arrives

The Revd David Ford was instituted as the Rector of Bromsgrove and Vicar of Dodford by the Bishop of Worcester at a service in All Saints Church on the 15th June. David has day to day responsibility for St Godwald’s, Finstall and All Saints, Bromsgrove, as well as overall responsibility for the Bromsgrove Team.

Ordained in 2009, David has been in ministry in Leeds City Centre, Hucknall in Nottinghamshire and most recently the Rector of eight rural parishes in the North Cotswolds, centred on Northleach.

DF arrives“The church community continues to be an important part of our villages and towns”, says David, “a sacred place to which we are drawn to celebrate family, community and national events, and a place of solace and support at times of need, whether personal or communal. All are welcome in all of our churches, whether you are a regular worshipper, dipping your toe into faith for the first time or simply curious about our buildings, their heritage and the faith to which they point.”
