The Rev Jeremy Tayler took up his appointment as Rector of Henley with Remenham on 24 September. Our services continue as normal with sung matins (BCP) on the first, third and fifth Sundays of the month and sung BCP Holy Communion (Merbecke) on the second and fourth Sundays.
The churchwardens of the United Benefice of Henley and Remenham are pleased to
announce that, following an interview panel, last week the Revd Jeremy Tayler has been
appointed as the new Rector.
Fr Jeremy was born in Lincolnshire and brought up in and around Bristol, but has lived most of his adult life in London. He studied International Relations and History at LSE before building a career in research administration. He has also worked briefly as both a religious studies teacher and nursery nurse in Finland, and spent two years as a full-time parent, picking up an MA in History and Politics from Birkbeck along the way. He then trained for the priesthood at Westcott House, Cambridge, before serving for three years as Assistant Curate at St John's Wood Church in the Diocese of London.
Fr Jeremy is a keen cyclist, and in his spare time he enjoys gardening, walks in the
countryside and outdoor swimming. He will be joined by his wife, Maura, who is from
Helsinki, Finland, and their daughters Blanche (9) and Ginevra (8). Maura, who loves
classical music, works for the Diocese of London as PA to the Archdeacon of Hampstead.
The whole family have a great love of cooking, hospitality and entertaining, and are all very much looking forward to life in Henley-on-Thames and Remenham. But most of all Fr Jeremy looks forward to learning more about where God is at work among the people of Henley-on-Thames and Remenham, and to playing his part in making the love of God real to people in these places.
Fr Jeremy’s institution will take place on Monday 24 September at 7.30pm at St Mary’s,
Henley and his first services in the Benefice will take place on Sunday 30 September. We
very much look forward to welcoming Jeremy and his family in September.
