New Associate Priest Appointed to the Parish

Rev Lerys writes:

I am very pleased to announce that the Bishop of Winchester, Bishop Tim has appointed Rev’d Rachel Hartland on a permanent basis as Associate Priest in the Benefice of Eversley and Darby Green.

This will be on a non-stipendiary basis. Rachel and her husband Graham will remain living at their home in Yateley, and look forward to serving the local communities over the coming years. A service of Licensing to this new role will be held at St. Mary's Eversley on Monday 9th April.


Graham and Rachel would like to thank everyone for their welcome last year when she was deployed to Eversley to complete her curacy. The encouragements they have received over the intervening months, both here at Darby Green and at St Mary's have been a big factor in the sense of calling Rachel has received from God to stay and minister here long-term. She is thoroughly looking forward to developing the ministry of the whole benefice with myself in these communities.
