Rev Andy Murphy
Our Minister
Rev Andy Murphy and his wife Emily

I am delighted to be taking over as the new minister in September, and I'm honoured to be following in the footsteps of Andy Hardwick, a very well-respected colleague.  I have already found Daventry to be a very friendly and welcoming church, and I was very keen to come and be part of it!

This is a new start for me, although without all of the trouble of moving house!  I will still be also responsible for the ministry of our churches at Market Harborough and Kibworth (so much will remain the same for me), and now we are entering into this new Circuit with great hope, and the joy of having so many other people to work with.  I am looking forward to being able to share in ministry with a much bigger team of ministers and lay-workers, and this sense of team ministry also extends to some of the local churches too.  At Daventry, I will be working with Kate Hitchcox (community chaplain) as well as Mandie Price (youth and families) and retired ministers such as David Collinson, as well as all of the pastoral visitors, stewards, and everyone else who plays such an important part in the life and mission of the church.  I will explain more about how it will all work in the next few months, but, for now, it will be good to just meet you and get to know you a bit. 

May God bless you all.  

Andy M.
