New vicar for the Raleigh Mission Community The Reverend Martin Jacques has been speaking about his move to East Devon.

The new vicar for the Budleigh Salterton area has spoken of his excitement at taking the role in the Raleigh Mission Community.

The Reverend Martin Jacques will take up the role after Easter 2018, replacing Anne Charlton who left earlier this year.

The 55-year-old said he and his wife Louise are ‘looking forward’ to moving to East Devon next year.

The new vicar of the Raleigh Mission Community said he has experienced a ‘variety of styles’ in his time. Currently he is the vicar of a large church in Tynemouth.

He added: “I had a very ordinary upbringing and a long and varied working life up until my conversion to Christianity in my mid-thirties so I have experienced many different employment scenarios.”

His wife Louise is a medical doctor specialising in geriatric medicine and it is because she was offered a professorial chair at Exeter University that we are moving to the Exeter area.”
