Rev. Lerys Campbell joins the Benefice of Darby Green and Eversley today as Priest in Charge after serving his curacy in the Parish of Ringwood on the western edge of the New Forest.
Lerys trained for ordination at Trinity College, Bristol where he studied for an MA in Theology. Whilst there, he was based in some of the more deprived areas on the western outskirts of Bristol and worked alongside the churches there reaching out to those communities.
Upon being ordained deacon in 2014, Lerys served his curacy the Parish of Ringwood, consisting of three churches, with a wide variety of worship styles and a mix of urban and rural churches. For the last year, Lerys has been helping lead the Parish through its vacancy and pastoral reorganisation.
Lerys, his wife Kate and their daughter, are excited about working together with St Barnabas and St Mary’s to listen to what God is calling us to do and be as the body of Christ in each of our communities. They look forward to meeting us and ask for our prayers as they begin their ministry amongst us.
