SOMA UK: future leader appointed2 weeks ago
We are delighted to hear that the Revd Richard Moy has been appointed as the next National Director of SOMA UK, to succeed the Revd Stephen Dinsmore who retires at the end of July 2021.
Richard is a long standing friend and supporter of ReSource for Anglican Renewal Ministries, and we look forward to working closely with him to grow the partnership that ReSource and SOMA UK have had over many years.
Stephen Dinsmore writes:
Please pray for Richard, his wife Revd Nicola and their three children, as Richard and family prepare for Richard’s new role with SOMA. Richard brings experience of networking church leaders in the UK, parish ministry, planting churches among little-reached sub-cultural groups in England, and vision to expand and develop SOMA’s worldwide ministry.
Richard says “2020 has been a game changing year. I have long felt that relations with churches overseas have been important to us, now I think that they are vital. I am convinced a new generation of ministers and churches in the UK will be renewed by serving and by being served by their sisters and brothers in countries around the Anglican communion who have paid a great cost for their own discipleship to Christ. SOMA asks churches who have been touched by the power of the Spirit to share and receive ministry from abroad. I look forward to joining you in that journey.”
“Richard Moy will be an excellent leader for SOMA as it … continues its vital work of bringing together different partners in the worldwide church”, Rt Rev Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington.
“Richard will build on the fine ministry of the past but will bring generational change, new ideas and fresh insight into the challenge of preparing God’s people in the UK and overseas to become the people He has been waiting for, (Romans 8:18-21)”, Revd Canon Patrick Whitworth, SOMA UK Chair.
May the peace of the Lord be with you,
National Director SOMA UK
Richard is currently the Resource Church Lead on the staff of Christ Church Turnham Green where he was the incumbent 2012-2019, and which is currently led by his wife Nicola. Richard and Nicola are Regional Directors for the New Wine London & West region.
