Lee Buck joins Horsham Parish as our Parish Youth Work Enabler

Lee became the Parish Youth Work enabler in May 2019. Lee has been involved in Youth Work for 10 years. Lee struggled as a teenager with school and home life. This led him wanting to help teenagers and become a Youth worker. Lee found his faith in his early 20’s. Lee felt a calling to use his passion for Youth and Christ to become a Christian youth Leader. Using both of his passions Lee can get alongside young people and help show how important God can be in their lives. Lee loves to spend time with his children. He enjoys socialising and watching tv series.

Following the Horsham Parish review, and the decision for St. John’s Church in Broadbridge Heath to become a separate Parish, we are now looking to move forward with the appointment process for a new Vicar for St. Mary’s.  It is still early days, but progress is starting to be made.

Over the coming month we will be finalizing our Parish Profile and awaiting a decision from the Bishop that we can go ahead and start the formal appointment process.
