Bishop John is pleased to announce the appointment of the Revd Richard Sandland as Rector of the Bowbrook Group.
Richard is currently serving as Assistant Curate in the Bromsgrove Team Ministry in this Diocese. He is married to Kath, who works part time as a baker in the kitchens at Hanbury Hall, itself within the Bowbrook Benefice.
Prior to ordination, Richard worked as a freelance tuba player and then as Music Operations Manager at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Bishop Martin will license Richard on Sunday 3 March at 4pm.
Please remember Richard and Kath in your prayers as they prepare to move.
