Subject to the usual formalities, we are pleased to announce that our new Rector will be the Revd Dr Edmund Newey. Edmund served his curacy in the south of Manchester, before moving to be a parish priest in Newmarket, Suffolk and then in Handsworth, Birmingham. Since 2013 he has been the Sub Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, where he oversees the ministry of Oxford's Cathedral. Edmund is married to Emma, a Senior Lecturer at Birmingham University, and they are the proud parents of an eleven year old daughter and an eight year old son.
Edmund said, 'I am delighted to accept Bishop Christopher's invitation to become your next Rector. The worship offered at St Andrew's and the ministry and mission based here are a great blessing to the town and I look forward to joining you in sharing the breadth and length and height and depth of God's love in Christ with the people of Rugby.'
