The Revd Jonathan Roger Mole at present Assistant Curate of Gamston and Bridgford in the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham to be Vicar of All Hallows, Lady Bay and St Edmund's Holme Pierrepont with Adbolton of the same Diocese.
Licensing date: 7:30pm on Tuesday 7 September 2021.
Yes, I mean that Jonathan who took our service last Sunday.
You'll notice that the licensing date is quite a long way off. Jonathan was ordained Priest in September this year and Phil (Archdeacon) and Mark (St Luke's and our Area Dean) felt it was important for him to have a year's experience under his belt before taking on the full role of Vicar.
Jonathan will be around at times, but we will still have our visiting clergy taking services and will still be in interregnum until September.
He'll be licensed initially for 3 years (to 2024), then if it's working that will be extended for another 3 years.
Jonathan's wife Kristine is in ministry training and due to be ordained in 2022, so we're getting 2 for the price of 1!
They have 4 daughters and the whole family are very musical so will hopefully feed in to our musical tradition.
The PCC have met with him a few times and are very happy with this outcome.
