Revd Richard Hutchins – Assistant Curate

I was licensed and installed as Priest-in-Charge of the United Benefice of Catherington and Clanfield, in March 2020 and also licensed as Assistant Curate to Rowlands Castle and Blendworth-Chalton-Idsworth. I was ordained Deacon in Portsmouth Cathedral by Bishop Christopher in 2017, and was priested in 2018. Before ordination I served for 28 years in the Royal Navy as a Marine Engineer (Submarine) Officer, reaching the rank of Commander RN. I am married to Diana and we have two adult sons, Jonathan and Angus; Jonathan is studying Medicine at UCL and Angus will read for a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Loughborough. We arrived here from my Title Curacy at St Mary Liss – and know this area well having lived in Widley since 1998, before our move to Liss.
