Spaldwick Welcomes New Vicar

Stephen Bowring

A large congregation welcomed Spaldwick’s new vicar – Stephen Bowring – who was officially licensed at a special service held in Spaldwick Church on Sunday 16th February 2014. Stephen is the latest in a long line of rectors of Spaldwick Church dating back to 1265, as shown here. Representatives and Church Wardens from Spaldwick, Easton and Barham were in attendance. The Venerable Hugh McCurdy – Archdeacon of Huntingdon and Wisbech – led the service.

The congregation was treated to a performance by the Kym Valley Benefice Choir, conducted by Stephen Bowring himself, who has a Bachelor of Music degree. It was delightful to hear the voices of a choir in St James Church.

Stephen is now responsible for seven parishes – Kimbolton, Barham, Covington, Easton, Spaldwick, Stow Longa and Tilbrook.
