Meet the Team

Revd John Durant

I have enjoyed serving the Lord in Grove and the other parishes of the Vale Benefice since April 2013. 😊

I have loved the Lord Jesus all my life and realised I wanted to follow him since I was 10! ✞

I was ordained in 1980 and my previous jobs as a clergyman have been in West Norwood London; Morden, Surrey and Rochester, Kent before becoming an Army Chaplain. ✞

God has blessed me with a lovely wife and we celebrated our Ruby wedding last September. We have 7 wonderful children and 7 delightful grandchildren.  😊
