Following the leaving presentation to REVD JONATHAN WATKINS last Sunday, we have received the following message from Jonathan to say …

Thank you to everyone in the Abbey and St Swithun’s who have made me so welcome in Romsey during the short time that I have been here.

The picnic at St Swithun’s was a lovely opportunity to share lunch and conversation together.

Trinity Sunday at the Abbey was very special. I was presented with the giant photo card, the Oil Stocks and your very generous cheque. The oil stocks will enable me to minister to others in annointing at Baptisms and with prayers for healing. The cheque will be your practical ministry to me – it will pay for the new cooker and fridge freezer that I have ordered for the vicarage in my new Parish!

Thank you once again for all that you have given to me and enabled me to share in amongst you.

Blessings through all the changes that will be taking place in the coming months.
