Announcement regarding Rev Dr Peter Sanlon

Feb 20, 2019 by

from the Diocese of Rochester:

It has been announced today (Sunday 17 February) that Peter Sanlon will be stepping down as vicar of St. Mark’s Church in Tunbridge Wells.

This is so that he can be received into the Free Church of England, as Rector of Emmanuel Church, Tunbridge Wells.

His last service at St. Mark’s will be on Easter Sunday.

The Free Church of England is a Christian church in the Anglican tradition, committed to the authority of the Bible as the inspired Word of God; it is a designated Church with which the Church of England has had formal ecumenical relations since 1992.

The Venerable Julie Conalty, Archdeacon of Tonbridge says:

“My prayers and good wishes go with Peter and his family as they take this next step together.

“As a Diocese, our utmost concern is for the pastoral care for Peter and his family, as well as for the parish of St. Mark’s, which remains a parish within the Church of England. We have therefore worked with Peter to support this transition in as pastoral and supportive a way as possible.

“I look forward to continuing to work with Peter as we develop our ecumenical friendship in the Tunbridge Wells area.”

Peter’s move will allow him to take on full-time ministerial responsibility for Emmanuel Anglican Church.
