Stewart's big day 

Congratulations to Stewart Betts who was ordained deacon, along with seven other people, in Leicester Cathedral by Bishop Martyn on Sunday, July 1st.

Stewart was in the Melton Mowbray Team Parish for more than four years before moving to Cuddesdon, near Oxford, in 2016 to begin training for the ordained ministry at Ripon College. 

He and his wife Zoe, along with daughter Joanna, have now moved to Ashby-de-la-Zouch, where Stewart will be serving his curacy at St Helen's Church.
