We are delighted to announce that, having completed her curacy, Sally will be starting as Team Vicar of St Margaret’s Edgware in the London Diocese from the beginning of September. Her last Sunday at St Mary’s Chesham will be Sunday 21st August.
St Margaret’s is an evangelical, charismatic church in the multicultural parish of Edgware. This historic church sits on the High Street in the centre of the business/retail area, a stone’s throw from Edgware Underground station (end of the Northern Line) and bus station. It is a very exciting time for Sally to be joining the Edgware parish which consists of three churches including St Margaret’s. The team is led by Rev Paul Berry, who was the team vicar of St Andrew’s on the Broadfield Estate and has just become both the Rector for the team and Area Dean. The third church St Peter’s has just opened a purpose-built church and community centre on the regenerated Stonegrove Estate. The Bishop of Edmonton Rob Wickham announced Sally’s appointment to the Edgware parish at the opening of that new church on 3rd July 2016.
Reflecting on her time in Chesham Sally commented
‘Being part of a large team has provided me with great training opportunities and also helped me realise how much I value being part of a team. The role of team vicar at St Margaret’s will give me the challenge I’m looking for in leading a church into growth with the benefit of colleagues in the wider parish who have years’ experience of working in the Edgware. Hammad and I are both delighted that God has called us to a multicultural parish where all our gifts can be used to build the church and reach out to the community. We will both miss Chesham very much and particularly St Mary’s where we have found good friends, support and encouragement for our ministry and mission. A big thank you to Simon and the rest of the team from whom I have learnt a lot, and to everyone for their prayers and support during my search for the next big adventure with God.’
