Letter from the Rector




Dear Friends


I would just like to introduce myself and my wife Wendy, we have moved into the vicarage in Raunds and I am the Rector of Raunds, Hargrave, Ringstead and Stanwick.

We both were brought up and lived in Wellingborough and have been married for almost 34 years.  Before I was ordained in 2015, I was for 27 years a stonemason and for 7 years prior to ordination worked as a commercial trainer for the British Red Cross, training people in first aid from how to use a defibrillator to paediatric first aid.

I was a reader in St Andrews Wellingborough and Wendy and myself helped with Sunday School, youth groups and a new group for families.  I also spent time as an ordinand in Great Doddington, Wilby and Ecton, after ordination I spent almost 3 years as curate of Christ the King in Kettering.

We moved into the vicarage in early April and I was inducted and instituted as Rector of the 4 Spires Benefice on April 22nd.

Both Wendy and myself look forward to becoming part of your community.

I feel that the church needs to be at the centre of what goes on in a community and to do that the church needs to be in the community.  I will endeavour to meet as many of you as possible and to attend as many events as possible, but please be patient.

My prayer for us all is that we can grow as a community and share the love and compassion of Jesus with each other.

Rev. Jon & Wendy Aldwinckle
June/July 2018
