I started this blog as a project for a sabbatical; originally I had no intention of keeping it going beyond a few months. So when I called it ‘Holloway Rev’ I didn’t really look ahead to the day when I would no longer be a Rev in Holloway. Well that time has come – after nine years as Superintendent Minister of the Islington and Camden Mission Circuit I have moved across the great cultural and geographical divide that is the River Thames and am now (back) in South London.
So ought I rename the blog? The church I am moving to is Walworth Methodist Church, which is as much in Camberwell as Walworth. We’re living in Peckham, just off Old Kent Road. This opens up a range of possibilities – Camberwell Rev, Walworth Rev, Peckham Rev. But if I pick one of them, I’m only going to have the same problem a few years down the road. For the time being it looks like I’m stuck with Holloway Rev.
