A message from Revd David Cattle – 22nd July 2018

I am delighted that I will be your new Vicar! And I am very much looking forward to taking up my new role in a few weeks’ time.

You are a great church with a strong leadership team, a good worshipping tradition, and a real heart to serve God in the local community. I am eager to begin worshipping and working with you all to bring glory to God in Galleywood.

My wife Kirsty, our 2-year old daughter Sophia, our golden retriever Bracken, and I, will be moving into the vicarage very soon. We look forward to joining the church family and making our new home in Galleywood.

Please pray for us as we move house, and as I prepare for the joys and challenges that lie ahead. And I shall pray for you all.

With much love in Christ’s name,


Please pray for God's wisdom over the coming weeks for all involved
