Welcome Richard

Today we warmly welcome the Reverend Richard Phillips who joins us as our new vicar.  He has moved from Holy Trinity Church, Walton, Aylesbury, where he has been Curate for the past 3 years. Since January 2016 he took on the responsibility of the day- to-day running of the church when his vicar became acting Archdeacon of Buckingham.

His other duties there included responsibility for Children’s Ministry, establishing a Summer holiday club, developing links with local primary and secondary schools, and working alongside adult and youth volunteers. He was an active member of the pastoral care team, regularly visiting people at home or in hospital.

He is married to Louise, and they have 3 children, Samuel, Hannah and Rebekah. Richard and his family have already settled  into the vicarage in Long Crendon  and is keen to get to meet his parishioners in Chearlsey, Nether Winchendon and Long Crendon.  So look out for him and give him a warm Chearsley welcome.
