The Reverend David Kettle

14th March 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce that the Reverend David Kettle died at home last Friday (11th March) after having been ill with cancer for some time. His funeral, with Holy Communion, will be held at Holy Trinity Church, Bottisham on Thursday 17th March at 1pm. Bishop David will preside, and clergy are invited to robe (white stoles).

David (63) served as NSM Curate in the Anglesey Group, after ministry in the dioceses of Bristol and St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, and in New Zealand. His main work for many years was studying and writing on the Gospel and our Culture, and he co-ordinated the network of that name (http://www.gospel-culture.org.uk/). He was able to complete his magnum opus Western Culture in Gospel Context shortly before his death, and it is now in press. (See below for cover commendations.)

David is survived by his wife Anne, and their children Shelagh, John, Aidan and James, and also by his mother Irene and brother Michael.
