New post for Yunghee

Published on Friday 15 May 2020

We are delighted to be able to announce that the Bishop of Southwark has, in consultation with the Revd Lorenzo Fernandez-Vicente, appointed the Revd Yunghee Koh to the post of Assistant Priest of St Luke's Church Battersea in the Deanery of Battersea.

Yunghee's last Sunday in Wimbledon will be 24th May and she will be licensed to the post at St Luke's on 7th June. The plan is for the licensing to take place remotely, online, and for it to be conducted by Bishop Richard.

Congratulations to Yunghee on her new appointment, although we will be very sorry to loose her in the team.

Yunghee will continue to live in her current home in Wimbledon until the end of August and we are hoping that we will be able to gather together to say farewell to her in person then.

St Mary's Farewell

Yunghee's last service for St Mary's will be the 10am Zoom Service on Sunday 24th May. We do hope you will be able to join us. Yunghee will be preaching and leading the service. We will be making a presentation during the service and we hope you will stay on for Zoom drinks after the service to toast her as we say farewell.

We will be having a full celebration to say farewell and thank you to Yunghee once lockdown is over, but if you would like to make a contribution towards her leaving present please either do so by Bank Transfer marking your contribution Yunghee to

or or send a cheque (payable to St Mary's Church) to the Parish Office with Yunghee's Leaving Present as the addressee.

We are also hoping to put together a book of photographs of Yunghee in Wimbledon and notes from people in the parish to present to her after lockdown has ended. Please send any contributions to the parish office by email or post. You might like to write a handwritten note to Yunghee and either scan it or photograph it to send.

Team Farewell on Ascension Day 21st May 8pm

Yunghee will be leading the Team Ascension Day service next Thursday (21st May) at 8pm which will be streamed on Zoom. Please join us for the service and have a drink handy to toast her after the service from the comfort of your homes. There will then be a chance to meet together in small groups, or to meet up with Yunghee in the main meeting room.
