He was licensed in a service taken by the Rt. Revd Jonathan Frost, the Bishop of Southampton, at St Michael and All Angels’ church in Lyndhurst. Ahead of the licensing service, Revd Potterton took part in services at the two other parish churches in the benefice; All Saints’ Church, Minstead, and Christ Church, Emery Down. The Bishop of Southampton led each of these services and presented Revd Potterton with the keys to each of the churches. Ordained in 2015, Revd David Potterton joins the benefice from Romsey Abbey, where he served as hugely popular Assistant Curate, taking pastoral care for the congregation at a time when the Abbey had no vicar. During his time at Romsey Abbey, Revd Potterton also initiated the ‘Say One for Me’ campaign, which allowed people on the street and farther afield to ask to have a prayer said on their behalf. The campaign was successful and ultimately recognised by both the Diocese of Winchester and the Church of England nationally. The Revd David Potterton said : “As Ann and I unpack boxes in the Vicarage in Lyndhurst, we do so with joyful anticipation. What is clear is that across the New Forest Benefice there is a shared confidence of God’s leading and a sense of excitement as we begin ministry here. I am looking forward to journeying with the three congregations in their worship and witness, being present in their communities, listening carefully and becoming Revd David Potterton and Bishop Of Southampton at Christ Church Emery Down a trusted friend in the Benefice. Believing in presence of the Holy Spirit and the purpose of God’s word, I understand my calling to the Benefice as simply to take every opportunity to make Christ known with gentleness and humility. Our shared conviction that we will witness the Kingdom of God growing across the Benefice gives us the energy we need to unpack the rest of the boxes, find out what God is doing in the Benefice and join in!” Volunteer cooks and helpers are urgently needed to help with lunches at the Age Concern Hall, Romsey.
