Revd David Talks – Associate Minister (House for Duty)


I have been Simon’s Associate Minister since September 2016 having moved from a full-time post in West Sussex just across the border from Haslemere.  I live in the Rectory (behind the Old Rectory!) in Newton Longville with my wife, Rosalind.  I am also excited by the potential for spiritual growth in the benefice and working with the many gifted people here.  When not working for the benefice, I develop a Ministry in Spiritual Direction and contemplative prayer.
