Associate Rector of Wychert Vale Benefice
We are delighted to announce that the Revd Canon Dr Phil Groves has been appointed as Associate Rector of Wychert Vale Benefice. He will join a team of clergy who are enabling ministry in the parishes of Haddenham, Stone with Dinton and Hartwell, Cuddington, Kingsey and Aston Sandford.
Phil is married to Anne and he currently works as Director of Continuing Indaba at the Anglican Communion Office in London. Indaba is a process of honest conversation that seeks to build community, energize mission, and provide a context in which conflict can be transformed.
Phil has had many years of experience of parish ministry in Leeds and Melton Mowbray, where he had a special role in encouraging young families. The Groves also spent six years in Tanzania where Phil taught in the Anglican training college and mentored new clergy. Phil and Anne have three adult children and are exploring becoming foster parents. They will be moving to live in Stone, later in the year.
