Revd Dr David Firth has confirmed that he will be leaving St John’s in August to take up the post of Lecturer in Old Testament at Trinity College, Bristol. David has served St John’s with great distinction since 2010 - initially as Director of Extension Studies, and latterly as Tutor in Old Testament and Head of Research. Since May last year he has brought characteristic efficiency to our academic management as Director of Studies. David will be much missed here as a gifted teacher, writer and preacher, a wise and caring guide to students, and a supportive and insightful colleague. Our prayers will be with David, Lynne, Jonathan, Rhiannon and Ben as the family relocates to Bristol, and we wish them every blessing for the future.
