We are here to serve the combined Anglican churches and the wider communities of Corsham, Lacock, Bowden Hill, Neston and Gastard. Our main aim is to grow followers of Jesus Christ through three key areas of activity which build upon each other, and which encourage us to look up, in and out:
- Growing in God (or looking up). We will be committed to being disciples of Jesus through prayer, Bible study and an active Christian life.
- Growing in Love (or looking in). We will model Christian love towards each other, creating attractive and hospitable communities of faith where people feel at home.
- Growing Community (or looking out). We will engage with our communities, seeking to be a Christian influence and encouraging people to follow Jesus.
You can keep up-to-date with what’s happening in our monthly and weekly Newsletters, the Rector’s News, and joining in with our activities; we also offer a wide variety of services for all ages. We look forward to meeting you in person!
There a wide variety of external sources in our Useful Links area and in particular should you need help with your faith please see our Growing In Faith section.
We also have a wide selection of ministers and other laity who help keep our parishes running, refer to our contacts section for more information
Revd Dr Andrew Johnson
Priest in Charge (Team Rector)
As you may know, the role of Assistant Curate is a training post, which lasts for between 3 and 4 years. My family and I will have been in the Greater Corsham and Lacock team for 3 years this July, so the time is right for us to think about moving on. I’m delighted to have been successful in applying for the post of Vicar of Wroughton and Wichelstowe, which is a parish that straddles the M4 south of Swindon. We anticipate that I will be licensed in Wroughton in the middle of July. In the interim, I have committed to covering for Revd Janet Anderson-MacKenzie (Box, Ditteridge and Colerne) when she takes a period of Extended Ministerial Development Leave after Easter. This means that I will be away from the Greater Corsham and Lacock Team from Easter Sunday until 10th July, probably returning for one Sunday before I’m licensed in Wroughton. My family and I will be sorry to leave you all behind, however we’re not going too far away, so hopefully we’ll be able to keep in touch! Phill.
Please do pray for Phill and the family as they prepare for this new chapter in their lives over the coming months.
