Richard and David are ably assisted in their duties by a committed ministry team, including two lay readers – John Kidney and Andrea McCauliffe. Claire Burbidge heads up our Juior Church and Messy Church groups.
Richard became the rector of Billing in the summer of 2016, having previously served as an assistant minister at Moulton Parish Church. He thinks that being a vicar is the best job in the world, as it involves introducing people to the best person in the world – Jesus Christ. Richard is married to Claire and together they have four young children. After stints in London and Suffolk, they are glad to be back in the midlands, having both been born and brought up in the West Midlands.
David is also an assistant minister in the church, having retired to the area in 2013. Prior to moving to Billing he served as the rector of Wavendon for nearly two decades.
