Who’s Who


Revd Simon Faulks – Rector

I have been Rector of the 5 Parishes since June 2015 having moved here from Warminster in Wiltshire where I served my Curacy.  I live in the Rectory in Mursley with my wife, Gill, and our three children.  I am passionate about the rural church (having grown up in Norfolk) and I am excited about what God might want to do among us here.

Revd David Talks – Associate Minister (House for Duty)
I have been Simon’s Associate Minister since September 2016 having moved from a full-time post in West Sussex just across the border from Haslemere.  I live in the Rectory (behind the Old Rectory!) in Newton Longville with my wife, Rosalind.  I am also excited by the potential for spiritual growth in the benefice and working with the many gifted people here.  When not working for the benefice, I develop a Ministry in Spiritual Direction and contemplative prayer.
