The next Rector of the Wykeham Benefice will be the Reverend Canon Neil Bowler, currently a priest in Sheffield Diocese. We expect that he will be installed formally by the Bishop of Oxford at 7.30pm on Tuesday 5th January 2021, which means that he will still be in his current group of parishes for Christmas. He was elected unanimously by the interview panel of parish representatives and Patrons.

We are very fortunate that our interregnum will have been less than a year. Many thanks to all of you for your prayers that an appropriate priest would be moved to apply. I know that Neil felt strongly called by God to this Benefice.
