The dioceseâ€™s newest priests were ordained by Bishop Ian at Guildford Cathedral on Saturday 28 June before holding Holy Communion for the first time in their respective parishes.
Those â€˜priestedâ€™ at the annual Petertide Ordinations are pictured on the steps of St Ursulaâ€™s Porch at Guildford Cathedral, just a few days before at the rehearsal for the important diocesan weekend.
A warm diocesan welcome to the Reverends Mike Barton, Claygate; Gareth Dicks, Cove; Martin Galpin, Surrey Weald Benefice, Jon Hidden, Christ Church and St Martha-on-the-hill, Guildford; Julian McAllen, Christ Church, Epsom Common; Anne Mitchell, St Michael, Camberley; Folli Olokose, Cobham and Stoke dâ€™Abernon; Barney Pimentel and Zoe Pimentel, both St Mary of Bethany, Woking; Maggie Troy, Farncombe; Lizzie Toms, Crondall and Ewshot; and Dermot Verschoyde, Merrow.
On Sunday 29 June, Bishop Ian will also ordain the diocese's new deacons as they complete their ministerial training - with most deacons then becoming next year's new priests.
