New Incumbent. We are pleased to announce that the new Priest-in-charge for this Benefice will be Rev. David Potterton. Currently Assistant Curate at Romsey Abbey, he will take up the post here during August and will be moving with his wife Ann into the vicarage in Forest Gardens, Lyndhurst. As well as All Saints’, Minstead, he will look after Christ Church, Emery Down and St Michael’s, Lyndhurst.
Churchwarden – As no one has been found to take Isabel’s place as Churchwarden she is obliged to remain in post until the end of July, but must step down at that point. Please do give some prayerful thought as to whether you could fulfil the role and support Liz. A list of duties is available; please ask.
In addition, there are many important roles, all of which contribute to the life of the church. It’s not necessary to be a member of the PCC to carry these out. Someone has kindly stepped forward to take on the fundraising. Here is another role; could you help?
* The PCC needs a Charitable Giving coordinator to provide information about and generally promote our chosen charities.

During May this church is supporting The Bible Society. After services, you can make your donations using the special collection dish; found either at the church door or in the Compton area.
New Forest Basics Bank aims to provide support and help to individuals and families in need. The collecting box is in church. You are welcome to bring donations of non perishable food and hygiene items whenever the church is open, which will support those in need.
