A new priest for the benefice of Abbotskerswell, Coffinswell and Kingskerswell

The following announcement was made in our three parish churches on Sunday 10th November.

It is announced today that the Reverend Michael Wilkie has been appointed Vicar of Kingskerswell, Abbotskerswell and Coffinswell, The Three Wells Mission Community in the Diocese of Exeter.

Michael is presently Rector of the Anglican Cathedral in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Director of Ministry for the Diocese of Argentina. Michael grew up in North Devon and was a Religious Education teacher at Ilfracombe College before and after his ordination in 2000, latterly serving as a self-supporting priest in the North Devon Coast Team Ministry. He moved to Argentina to take up full-time ministry in 2005 and has had a richly varied ministry in both urban and rural communities in that country.

Michael and his wife Cora will move to Kingskerswell in the new year and subject to the completion of all legal formalities, he will be instituted to his new ministry by the Bishop of Exeter on the evening of Monday, February 24th at a service in St Mary's, Kingskerswell at which all will be welcome.

Your prayers are asked for Michael and Cora as they prepare for their move to the United Kingdom and for this new chapter in Michael's ministry as a priest.
