A new year. Fresh beginnings, looking forward with hope.

Just before Christmas we finally received the good news we had all been waiting for. We will be getting a new vicar.

The Rev Dot Gosling will be joining us just after Easter. Dot has two daughters and enjoys singing and plays guitar and keyboard.

Dot was ordained in Chester in 2010, and has been working as a pioneer priest for the Dyffryn Clwyd Mission Area for the last year and a half, working across all the parishes in the Mission Area with a special responsibility for engagement with families and young people.

Dot’s life experiences have been varied, she has been a caterer, night nurse, parish administrator, night shelter coordinator, youth worker, mentor, family support worker, Diocesan Youth Officer, and senior lecturer and chaplain at Chester University.

With her experience with mission areas, and her energy and passion for life, we are sure that Dot will ably lead us into this new era of the church.

We would like to thank everyone working to keep the Parishes running through this interregnum, and look forward to Dot taking up her Post in April.
