IoW Archdeacon Peter Reads to Children

The diocese of Portsmouth has been asking people to read stories for children who are at school and those learning at home.

Here is the Archdeacon of the Isle of Wight, Peter Leonard, reading a story about a small Viking who was brave. This hilarious tale, for three to six year olds, shows the true meaning of bravery and the delights that await when one faces one’s fear.

Father John announces his retirement

Dear Friends

It is with great sadness that I write to let you know that I have decided to retire. We have lived here longer than we have ever lived anywhere else, and it will be a great wrench to leave you, these churches and the island. We will be moving to be closer to the hospitals we need to attend, and to our children.

A PCC meeting will soon be arranged to meet with the Archdeacon to plan for the interregnum. My last service will be on Sunday 23rd February.

Yours in Christ

Fr John & Brenda
