Associate Vicar News

Following interviews at the end of October, we are pleased to announce that Tom Benyon has been appointed as Associate Vicar at St Michael’s. Tom is currently curate at St John’s church in Peasdown, Bath. He has a background as a teacher, and during his curacy has been responsible for developing  small group ministry  at his church, and beginning a men’s ministry.

Tom says:

I grew up in North Bucks and went to school near Oxford. After my degree in English literature at Edinburgh, I went on to teach English and Drama in secondary schools in London and Hong Kong, as well as direct numerous school productions. We moved West for me to train for ordination at Trinity College, Bristol and I’m currently into my fourth year as a curate in Peasedown St John, Bath. I am married to Sara and we have three wonderful boys, Elijah (10), Zachary (8) and Raphael (5), a dog called Lottie and two chickens (!). We are thrilled to be coming to Stoke Gifford and serving amongst you at St Michael’s. We look forward to joining your church family shortly- in the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas season!

Tom and family, will be joining us in the early new year.

Please pray for them as they prepare to move and join the leadership in our Church.
