FORMER BRIGG VICAR INSTALLED IN HIS NEW PARISH
Former Brigg Vicar Father Owain Mitchell has been installed at his new parish in Derbyshire so we can start to think about who his replacement will be at St John's Church and how long this process is going to take.
The member of clergy appointed will also minister to the spiritual needs of parishioners in Wrawby, Cadney & Howsham, Bonby and Worlaby.
Father Owain, who conducted his last service in Brigg on December 29, was inducted as Vicar of New Mills, in the Peak District, on February 6. In attendance were the Bishop of Derby and the Archdeacon of Chesterfield.
St George's Parish Church has posted "An Introduction to Father Owain Mitchell, Vicar of New Mills" - informing parishioners about his time in the church, which began in the Bridlington area.
In accordance with Church of England procedures, he resigned his living in Brigg on February 5 - after 15 years - and the following day was made Vicar of St George’s.
Our picture - taken by Ken Harrison, of Brigg Matters magazine - shows Father Owain during his last service at the town's St John's Church.
