Geddington to welcome new vicar

As many of you will know St Mary Magdalene Church has been without a priest in charge since Father Rob left earlier this year. At the recent Harvest Festival Service the Churchwardens, John Bennett and Jane Rowley, were pleased to make the following announcement:


 We are delighted to announce that, following interview, and with the agreement of the representatives of the patron and of the parishes, the Reverend Gillian Gamble has accepted Bishop Donald’s invitation to become Priest in Charge of the Parishes of Geddington and Weekley. Subject to the normal Church of England legal and administrative procedures, Gillian will be licensed by Bishop Donald in Geddington Parish Church on Sunday 3 February at 3.00 pm.

Gillian is currently curate in the Parish of St Peter and St Paul, Oadby, in the Diocese of Leicester. She will be joining us with her partner Sarah Treanor in February. Prior to ordination, Gillian worked as a youth worker for 13 years. Gillian writes:

‘Sarah and I, along with our dog Harley, are very much looking forward to joining you in Geddington and Weekley and to becoming part of the community.’

The Churchwardens will keep the website in touch with developments and provide more details about arrangements for Gillian’s arrival nearer the time.

    Dear Rev.Gillian,
    Will there be a special Service for Eleanor Castille in December outside please? Thank you.
    Yours sincerely, Alice Sanders.

    • The Revd Gamble tells me that there will be a service for Queen Eleanor, probably early December, but dates are still being sorted so keep an eye on the church website, or the noticeboard if you live in the village.
