It is with great excitement that we can announce that we are looking forward to welcoming Revd Tim Laundon as our new Priest In Charge of the Benefice of Ludgershall and Tidworth in the New Year.
Tim and his wife Amy are currently based in Windsor and preparing for their move to Wiltshire. Please continue to pray for them as they make these preparations and Tim finishes his responsibilities there.
And also continue to pray for the PCC, Church Wardens and supporting clergy here, as we continue to serve Ludgershall and Faberstown during the remainder of the vacancy until mid January 2019, when it is anticipated that Tim will be installed here by the Bishop. We praise God for His faithfulness and goodness to us and His provision for us during this time.
