Vicar of St Mary’s – Rev’d Philip Cochrane

Philip will be joining us from Wales where he has been the Leader of the Caerleon & Llanfrechfa Group Ministry.

Philip and his church family in Wales are very much in our thoughts and prayers at this time.

With love
Camilla and John
Churchwardens, St Mary’s

A few personal words from Philip

“It is a real honour to have been offered the post of Vicar of St Mary’s, Banbury which I have gladly accepted. In truth, I am very humbled to have been short-listed, much less be appointed! I was very taken with the people I met on the very thorough (and exhausting) selection process – can I thank those of you who helped in any way, it was much appreciated.

I hope that you will find me an approachable person who has come to serve with you all as part of the St Mary’s team. That, together, trusting and depending on God we might see his kingdom grow in our lives, the town and beyond. It is going to be an adventure with highs and lows but let us journey together with grace for each other and have fun on the way!

Please be assured of my prayers (you will need them with me coming!), as I covet yours for these months before I join you.”
