Revd Alex Pease has now retired from acting as Rector of Itchen Valley Parish. I am pleased to inform you that our next Priest in Charge and Rector Designate is to be Peter Walker. He comes to us following a distinguished career as a tutor, an extensive writer and as a pilgrimage guide. He is also an able musician and singer. He and his wife Georgie will move into the Rectory at the beginning of August and Peter will be installed in early September.
Those of us that have met them have found Peter and Georgie both impressive and delightful. We are confident that Peter will be a great pastoral leader, be a wonderful teacher and contribute greatly to our worship. Further, both Peter and Georgie will bring a great deal to the wider community in the Valley. Peter will be a worthy successor to Alex. This appointment is excellent news!
