Rev Jon Barrett, his wife Rachel and their two children Ruth & James have been an important part of our Thurnby community for the last ten years. As Jon now moves onto a new exciting job working for Leicester Diocese, we wanted to show our appreciation to the Barrett family for all their contribution.

A shared meal one Sunday lunchtime at the end of October saw over 180 people collect together in St Luke’s School for a time of celebration and reflection with faces old and new. We shared photos, watched video messages and presented the family with some special gifts.

It was a very special time together as we realised how much we will miss them, however we know Jon will be a great asset and influence to the Leicester Diocese and our loss will be their gain.
