Farewell to Revd Jonathan Watkins

Revd Jonathan WatkinsOn Sunday 27th May 2018, Revd Jonathan Watkins will preach his final service in Romsey Abbey. Jonathan was welcomed to the Abbey at the Epiphany Gift Service in January 2017. A fitting start, as his presence in the Parish has been just that.

All are welcome to join the 10am Choral Eucharist at the Abbey, when the clergy, churchwardens, and congregation will recognise their appreciation of his work and ministry, and particularly for his involvement with the congregation at St Swithun’s, Crampmoor. Stay for refreshments after the service or join us at Parish Tea at 4pm later in the afternoon to say your goodbyes.

Jonathan has been appointed as Priest-in-Charge of St Mary, Knutton, in the Diocese of Lichfield and will be licensed on Saturday 16th June. A coach party is planned, if you would like to be included, please sign up at the Mission Table in the Abbey or contact the Parish Office.
