Licensing of Seth as Rector and Carolyn Wood as Associate Priest of the Walmer and Cornilo Benefice by The Right Rev’d Trevor Wilmot, Bishop of Dover, in St. Mary’s, Walmer.


A message from

Rev’d Carolyn Wood…  I am excited to be taking up a new post in Walmer and Cornilo Benefice.  I am coming back to England after fourteen years in the Church in Wales, sixteen including my two years at theological college in Cardiff.  I am coming back to the Church of England which originally sponsored me for training in ministry.  I will now be closer to my family in London and beyond; the shorter the trip to the airport to visit my granddaughter will make Seattle seem a little less of a journey! I look forward to getting to know you all and to finding my way around the parishes in the Benefice.  Also, to enjoying the lovely environment of Deal, Walmer and surrounding areas. 

Rev’d Carolyn.

Christmas Market 2019 - I am sure that Christmas 2019 is not what you want to be thinking about this January but it will be happening in November. I have started to make a few things but I must admit they are items that I had started and had intended to make them for Christmas 2018! I just wanted to rack your brains about Christmas markets you may have attended at the end of last year. Did you see anything that you thought was a really good idea? Perhaps the organisation, things that we could possibly make, or items that were selling very well. Please let me know so we can come up with some new ideas next November.  Tina Roberts
