Reverend Stephen Thatcher has appointed Rector for the Parish Seale Puttenham and Wanborough. We anticipate that he will start with us in early 2018.
After a few years in commerce followed by ordination in 1988, Stephen’s early ministry was in Wales, and subsequently he has spent the last 18 years serving as Chaplain to the Forces in the Army. His final post there has been as Chaplain to the Defence College of Technical Training at Lyneham and as Chaplain to the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Headley Court, Surrey.
This appointment is subject to standard medical and background checks.
