Announcement: Rev Lisa Taylor

During the Sunday service, the congregation was informed about the departure of Rev Lisa Taylor who will be moving on to a new role in the Islwyn ministry area. While it is a time of sadness, we are sending her off with love and support, and expressing gratitude for all that she has done for us during her time with us. We have faith that God will guide her path in this new chapter of her life, and we wish her all the best with abundant blessings on her journey.

Here is the statement that was read out in the churches:

Following an application process we announce that Revd Lisa Taylor has been appointed by the Bishop to be a Team Vicar in the Islwyn Ministry Area. She will continue in ministry here until after Christmas with a licencing in her new role early January.
Revd Lisa says: Thank you for sharing this part of my ministry journey with me. I feel privileged to have been able to serve you as a priest and share in your lives. My time with you may have been brief but I have many memories to take with me as my path now leads me in a different direction. I have seen how much you have grown as ministry area and I pray that you will continue to grow in unity and in strength and have many new opportunities to share God’s love and presence with those you are called to serve. We are all called to walk the path God sets out before us, wherever it leads. I am sad to leave you but I am also excited to see what opportunities to share God’s love and build God’s kingdom lies before me in the Islwyn Ministry Area.
Revd Matt says: We have been blessed to have Lisa with us over the last year, and we are sad to see her go. We pray she has a fruitful ministry as she transitions back to the Islwyn Ministry Area, where she served her curacy. Her warmth of character and genuine spirituality have been felt among us, and I know she will flourish in her new role.
