A big welcome to our new ordinand, Doug Rice-Bowen! Here's what Doug has to say: "A huge welcome to St John’s. I am Doug and I have the great privilege to be the ordinand attached to the parish. That means I am training to be a priest under the guidance of the team. I will be working in the parish, visiting, leading worship and help to grow the wonderful Christian community here in Menston. Along with my work here in Menston I will be studying with St Hild’s College, a theology college based in Mirfield.
I am married to Jane and have twins who keep me on my toes. When I am not working you will probably find me following my other passions of cricket, rugby and Brighton and Hove Albion. Apart from mission and evangelism I have a passion for church music and that has been a large part of my Christian journey." Please keep Doug, Jane and the twins in your prayers as we welcome Doug as our new ordinand.
