Previously, he occupied a similar post at All Saints’ Antrim and speaks very warmly of his time there.

“My family and I have enjoyed every minute of our time at All Saints’,” he said.

“The congregation was very welcoming to my wife Wendy, our daughter Abigail and I when we first arrived and they have looked after us as much as we have them. We have made a lot of very good friends in the Parish.”

This part-time post will be combined with his ‘day job’ as a lecturer in Information Technology at Belfast Metropolitan College.

He is married to Wendy, who works as a Civil Servant in Belfast and the couple have one daughter, Abigail,

Commenting on his new curacy, Adrian said: “We are very much looking forward to our time working with Dean and Mrs.Bond and all the parishioners at St. Patrick’s Broughshane.”
