The 14th Vicar of S. Barnabas’
The Parish Representatives and Churchwardens, Christopher and Jane and Kay our Parish Secretary are delighted to announce that Fr John Eldridge has been offered and has accepted the Incumbency
of S. Barnabas’ and will be our 14th Vicar. Many of you may have met the Eldridges before as Fr John has served in the Diocese of Chichester for many years. We know how welcome you will make them both.
We made this announcement in church today as soon as legally possible as we were aware that there was keen interest in what was happening.
We will let you know as soon as we hear more about the date of Fr John’s and Mrs Eldridge's arrival,
Please hold the Eldridges in your prayers as they make preparations for their
move to Hove. Please pray also for the people of S. John the Divine, Worthing who are losing their much loved and longstanding priest.
