South Warwickshire Circuit
Warwick University Chaplain
Warwick University are delighted to announce the appointment of a new Free Church Chaplain --Rev Mark Rowland.
Mark will also undertake doctoral study with the University of Leeds exploring 'a queer theology of holiness'. As a Stonewall Faith role model and active campaigner for LGBT+ equality within the church, Mark is well placed to help Warwick University build on their inclusion, engagement and wellbeing priorities.
Mark has recently moved into Whitnash manse with his partner Rev Sam McBratney, and we look forward to seeing him leading worship in the Circuit.
The Welcome Service for Mark will be at Warwick University on Wednesday 16th October at 3:30pm.
