New priest for St Giles, Horsted Keynes
After 20 months of vacancy, we can now announce that St Giles has a
new dedicated priest. He is the Revd Clive Ashley, married to
Lesley. Clive is a very youthful 64. They will be moving to us
from their current home in Lancashire.
Since ordination, Clive was first a hospital chaplain in Newcastle
then, for nine years, the District Hospital Chaplain to Chichester
hospitals. He then spent a further nine years as Rector of
Fishbourne and Priest in Charge of Apuldrom, both within a stone’s
throw of Chichester Cathedral. In 2010, Clive and Lesley moved in to
the Chelmsford Diocese where Clive was Priest at St Andrew’s Sandon
and St Mary’s Little Baddow, Essex.
We don't yet know exactly when Clive and Lesley will be moving into
the rectory but as soon as possible. In the meantime, Clive
and Lesley have asked me to say how they are very much looking
forward to getting to know us all and Clive is particularly
delighted to be given the opportunity to serve the community of
