This handy priest is starting a project to build his own pizza oven and hopes it will be up and running by the autumn.
Mark said: “I am looking forward to getting to know the community here in Hucclecote and cooking a few pizzas along the way.”
Mark, his wife Amy, his children Archie, 3 and Mabel 1 and their two cats Panda and Mouse have moved to Gloucester from Trull, near Taunton, where Mark worked as a curate.
Mark said: “I am really excited to be here as part of the community in Hucclecote, and to be working with the church here to continue to share the love of Christ with everyone. We believe in the power of the gospel to transform lives and communities, and that only through faith in Jesus can we have life in all its fullness.”
Mark started his new role as Vicar of the parish of Hucclecote, St Philip and St James on 24 July.
