This, for Vince, will be a hard time for him to leave this much needed work. In our discussions with him we have talked about coming back to Downlands and being an MSC presence in the College. Vince has graciously accepted a return to Downlands College and being an MSC presence there and as such this will become an evolving ministry as time goes on. 

As of the 1st January 2019, Vince is appointed officially to Downlands.
