Mark joined the team from Evenlode Vale Benefice – a church in the North Cotswolds, where he was youth minister for two years. Prior to that he worked in schools as a TA and a Religious Studies Teacher. Mark did his undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Politics and recently completed a Graduate Diploma in Theology. He is recently married to Rowena. Mark enjoys sport, going to the gym, reading novels and philosophy, eating out and watching films! His passion is to help young people believe the gospel and know God as a reality in their lives.
We both farewelled and celebrated Chris, Charlotte and the family on Sunday 16th August. Chris joined us in August 2019 and they have been God’s gift to us in this season and will be deeply missed.
Chris will be taking up a new position as Rector of St Mary Magdalene with St Leonard, Newark-upon-Trent. The family have loved being part of Latimer Church for the last couple of years, and will miss the community here very much; but they’re also excited about this new opportunity.
They leave us with heartfelt prayers and we know they will be a huge blessing in their new community.
Songs in the Night
All Saints Church, Sat 24th, 8-9pm
This is an opportunity to enter into the spiritual practice of lament. This means acknowledging together the painful and difficult parts of life, giving our hearts space to sit with difficult questions, and to be present to our own feelings in the gentle and gracious presence of our God. It will be a really safe and welcoming time together, and you won’t be asked to share anything. You may choose to come because you are in, or have been through, a particularly difficult season in your life, or you may resonate with the desire to cry out to God over the brokenness of our world. All are welcome.
