This week’s retreat is lead by Reverend Chris Lavender
I have been the Priest-in-charge at St Nicholas, Allington & St Andrew’s, Barming Heath in Maidstone for the last seven years. I was ordained in 2010 having had a previous career working for a bank, and have a wife, Sarah, and three grown up (and left home) children. As you will note from my audio piece on ‘Psalms of Pilgrimage’ one of my main interests is walking although I also do a fair amount of cycling – I have done more than usual over the last year during the various lockdowns. My other significant interest is motorcycling, when the weather permits, and I have owned various bikes over the years with my latest being a rather loud Harley Davidson.
