The Vicar

St Mary’s New Vicar

Revd David Payne joined the parishes of Bottesford and Muston in mid September 2015.

Who is David?

David was ordained twenty years ago, and apart from a brief excursion into hospital chaplaincy, has served in rural and semi-rural multi-parish benefices throughout.

He became the Associate Minister of the Vale Benefice in 2014 having moved from the Diocese of St Albans where he  had been Rector of three churches near Hertford for the previous 8 years. He is married to Jo, with two teenage boys, and his interests are football, walking and reading P G Wodehouse.

David's background was originally in information work, although he also worked for a time in a mission society promoting education and literacy, and for a short time was the Youth Services Manager for Guildford YMCA.

His career highlight was the rare privilege of working on the Sooty Show!
