The Parish of the Nativity of the Lord

Deacon Tim Murrill

Deacon Tim moved to Redhill in 1990 with his new job as Head of Science Department at St. Bede’s School. His family became parishioners at St Joseph’s parish, as it was then, and his children attended St Joseph’s Primary and St Bede’s schools.

Around 2004 he felt called to explore his vocation as a Deacon and was ordained on 29th June 2008 at St Joseph’s church. He was Deacon here as the three parishes of St Teresa’s, Holy Family and St Joseph’s became The Nativity of the Lord in 2009.

Deacon Tim remained at St Bede’s until 2013, when he took early retirement and now can spend more time assisting the priests, although he also supports the Deanery and has a Diocesan role as well.

About Us

In May 2009 the Parish of the Nativity of the Lord was officially inaugurated by Bishop Kieran Conry, bringing together in a single united community worshippers from the former Parishes of St Joseph’s in Redhill, Holy Family in Reigate and St Teresa of the Child Jesus in Merstham. Whilst retaining its three Churches, the new Parish is administered as a single Parish under the care of Fr Tony Bridson.  Working with Fr Tony are Deacon Tim Murrill and key groups of lay representatives from the three Churches.

Thought for the week

Jesus’ command to the disciples …… provides the Church with her mission – the mission that the Lord calls us to continue today and, indeed, throughout history. Make disciples of all the nations. Baptise. Teach.

Bishop Richard Moth
