Welcome to our New Minister – Rev. John Langlands
It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Wilfrid’s and St Michael’s. Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves from both churches, so you will not be disappointed when you visit either one of them.
Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us. A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.
This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives.We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.Together we are with you on life’s journey’. Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!
