Introducing Craig Philbrick, our soon-to-be curate!

Craig will be ordained Deacon on Sunday 30th June at Winchester Cathedral. Please pray for him, his family and all the Ordinands as they prepare for this special occasion.

Craig says “I’m thrilled to be joining you all at North Stoneham and Bassett in July. Together we can pray, learn, and share the good news of Jesus in the parish”. “I have just completed ordination training at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford, and I will be ordained on the 30th June 2019 at Winchester Cathedral”. “Please do come if you can”. “Before all this, I spent the last 10 years helping charities and corporations with their digital campaigning, social media, marketing, brand and strategy”. “I have a BA in Politics and Global Studies from the University of Winchester, and (if I manage to finish this dissertation) a BA in Theology from Durham University”. “Since 2016, I’ve been a Trustee of Livability and a Member of the Digital Steering Group for the Church of England”.

“I’m married to Bethany, a Physiotherapist for the NHS, and we have two delightful children — Florence aged 5 and Henry aged 1”. “Please do hold us in your prayers, as we move and settle into our new family home, and pray for all those who will be ordained this year, especially those who I have been studying alongside at Wycliffe Hall”.
