Announcement of New Vicar

Yesterday there was an announcement in the church service, that we have a new Vicar, Rev Tom Robson. 

Below is a message from him:

“Dear St John’s, we are really excited about coming to join you and partnering together in God’s mission. I look forward to telling you the story of how we believe God has called us to Southbourne in due course, as well as getting to know you all and hearing your stories. By way of a brief introduction, I am married to Emily and we have three daughters, Martha, Mollie and Miriam aged 11, 9 and 2. Emily and I were both born near the Sussex sea and will feel very much at home. I have worked for churches in East Sussex, Cambridge and more recently at Angmering and currently as vicar of Wick, Littlehampton. We would be grateful for your prayers and we will also continue to pray for you during the rest of the vacancy. We really look forward to becoming part of the church family and the local community. God bless, and see you soon!”

We look forward to welcoming Tom and his family to St. John’s in the near future.
