Following the retirement of The Reverend Andrew Sawyer, the Parish Church of St Lawrence is getting ready to welcome its new Vicar, The Reverend Mike Saunders and his wife Alison Saunders who is a Licensed Lay Minister.
Mike and Ali have chosen to come and minister in Hungerford after being in their previous parish for the past 15 years. His Induction Service, led by the Bishop of Reading, the Rt Rev. Andrew Proud, will take place at St Lawrence’s Church on Monday 14th March 2016 at 7.30 pm and afterwards light refreshments will be served in the Town Hall.
It has been a quarter of a century since the last Induction Service took place here and will be a very special occasion not only for Mike and Ali but for the congregation of St Lawrence’s and the Town of Hungerford. Everyone at St Lawrence’s is very much looking forward to welcoming them both not just to the church but into the whole community.
