St Leonard’s has been Interregnum since Revd Dr Rob Thomas retired last year, however, pastoral care is still important to us. If you or someone you know is unwell, lonely or perhaps would just appreciate a friendly chat over a cup of tea, please contact Churchwardens Debbie or Gill – we have a variety of people we can ask to visit.
Our new Rector Jake Eggertsen will start in September 2022. He and his family are expected to move to Trowbridge in the summer prior to his licensing to the benefice in a service in St James on the afternoon of Sunday 11 September which will be led the new Bishop of Salisbury, Rt Rev Stephen Lake. Jake is the curate at St Paul’s Banbury where he has served since July 2019.
Before training for the ministry at Oak Hill College he was a history teacher for four years at King’s School in Bruton. Nicola is an English teacher currently working part-time for Bible Counselling UK, and they have a family of three daughters. Jake says that they are immensely excited by the opportunity to participate in the Lord’s work at St James’ and St Leonard’s in this next season of the benefice’s life.
