Parish priest: Reverend Denis Robinson - Priest-in-Charge.  

We are pleased to announce the the appointment of the Reverend Denis Robinson as Priest-in-Charge of Cornwood and Sparkwell, working on Sundays and 2 other days on parish matters.
Denis was born in Plymouth and his heart is very much in Devon. He trained as a teacher of Religious Studies at the College of St Mark and St John and in 1980, took up a post teaching Religious Education at Gordon's School in Woking.
In 1988, Denis began ministerial training and ultimately became Chaplain of Gordon's School in 1994 and helped in a local parish, Bisley and West End.  He retired and returned to Devon last year.
The Reverend Denis likes reading, History and sport in general and is a season ticket holder of Plymouth Argyle (Chelsea before that. Oh dear!) He is a member of Meavy Gardening Club, Yelverton History Club and a Friend of the Wharf, Tavistock.
Both parishes are delighted that Denis and his lovely wife, Stevie have agreed to interrupt their retirement to help us and feel we are very lucky to have them to oversee the spiritual life of our villages.
We are sure you will all give this down to earth, approachable couple a very warm welcome.  There are a few legal formalities before we can hold a licenseing service, probably sometime in November.
