We haven't had a vicar for some 3.5 years so are pleased to announce that the Rev'd Kat Mepham has accepted our invitation to become our vicar, taking up her post on 22 June 2020.
Kat writes: I'm so excited to have been asked to be Priest in Charge of the Leadon Vale Benefice. I'm married to Ali who is also a priest, but is going to take a sabbatical for a bit. I have 5 wonderful children - Molly (18) who has just started Uni, Tom (16) who loves drama, Nat (13) who is a bit of a deep thinker, Jem (11) who never sits still and Eliza (8) who rules the roost.
I like taking the dogs for long country walks and being outdoors. Ali and I enjoy opening our house and inviting people over for food and fellowship. We love being part of community and we are really looking forward to getting to know the villages and becoming part of the Leadon Vale Community. My favourite food is probably curry and I love experimenting, although that can be difficult as I have to be gluten free. I love pub quizzes (and used to be part of a team ) escape rooms, real board games and fun!
Church-wise I've been involved in pretty much everything over the years. I love seeing the church community and village community intertwine, all wrapped up in the love of Jesus. The whole family are so excited about moving into the Benefice - we look forward to meeting you. (Return to top)
