Welcome our New Priest in Charge

We would like to welcome Rev. Lerys Campbell to St Barnabas Church as our new Priest in Charge. Lerys was licensed at a special service held on Monday the 25th September at St Barnabas.

Lerys CampbellLerys trained for ordination at Trinity College, Bristol where he studied for an MA in Theology. Whilst there, he was based in some of the more deprived areas on the western outskirts of Bristol and worked alongside the churches there reaching out to those communities.

Upon being ordained deacon in 2014, Lerys served his curacy the Parish of Ringwood, consisting of three churches, with a wide variety of worship styles and a mix of urban and rural churches. For the last year, Lerys has been helping lead the Parish through its vacancy and pastoral reorganisation.

Lerys, his wife Kate and their daughter, are excited about working together with the people of the parish of St Barnabas to listen to what God is calling them to do and be as the body of Christ in our community. They are looking forward to meeting us and ask for our prayers as they begin their ministry amongst us.
