New vicar for Chepstow

Rev Philip Averay has taken over the reigns as vicar of Chepstow.

Philip was officially licensed by Bishop Richard at a special service in St Mary’s parish church on Monday (25 September) and is responsible for St Mary’s parish church in the town centre and St Christopher’s in Bulwark.

Philip has moved from Gloucestershire to take-up the post, so we welcome him to our diocese and offer him our best wishes and blessings.
