Frances thanked everyone for making him and his wife feel at home from the day they moved into Wantage, and is looking forward to serving among us for the next few years!


A new Curate for Wantage Parish

Petertide 2024

The Bishop of Bristol is delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Benji Tyler as Vicar of St Andrew Chippenham & St Nicholas Tytherton Lucas. Licensing details to be confirmed in due course.

A message from Fr Benji: “It has been my privilege and joy to serve the Lord alongside you here in Wantage for the nearly four years of curacy. The parish has formed me and my ministry in so many ways, and taught me, perhaps above all, to be like a well-planted tree - rooted deeply in the love of God but flexible enough to withstand all that life might bring, expected or not! This has certainly been a curacy of some variety (!), but throughout it, you have provided encouragement to embrace every challenge with confidence. I am stronger for you, and I am grateful to the entire community for taking me to your hearts and showing me love, even as I have tried to Live Jesus amongst you.

I will leave you after Easter (DV) with a heavy heart, but I am assured that you are in fine fettle and good hands, and I am pleased to be going to a diocese and a parish with such historic links to Wantage. Long may they continue. God bless you all.”
