"Welcome to St David's Church, Exeter"
We are very pleased that Chris and Jenny
will be joining us in September
Christopher & Jenny Durrant
Chris will be ordained a full-time stipendiary transitional Deacon on September 13th 2015 at 10:00 in Exeter Cathedral (God willing!) to serve the parish of St. David’s with St. Michael’s & All Angels, Exeter.
At 6pm Chris and Jenny will be welcomed to the parish in a special Sung Mass at St Michael's, everyone is invited to this service.
He will not be accepting licensing as Lay Worker over the summer, but will attend parish services from August without clergy responsibilities.
Chris is currently balancing his training on the South West Ministry Training Course, where he is Senior Student, with his part-time work as a microbiologist for South West Water. He will resign from the laboratory in July, and hopes to have completed his dissertation on the symbolism of Baptismal Fonts by then!
Jenny is the Assistant Curator of Antiquities at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter. Jenny and Chris have lived in Exeter for 15 years, Jenny originally coming to read Archaeology at Exeter University, and Chris Biological Sciences. They have subsequently worshipped at St. James’ Church.
Chris and Jenny are very much looking forward to meeting the people of St. David’s with St. Michael’s & All Angels and journeying together in faith. Pray for us.
Heritage Lottery Fund have awarded us £50,000 for the preparation phase of the work. Over the next nine months we are working with our engineers and architect so that we know the exact detail of all the work that needs to be done.
