John de Wit RIP

Dear Friends in Christ,

It is with great sadness that I inform you that John de Wit died peacefully on the morning of Sunday 17th June, only a few weeks after learning he had cancer. 

John is remembered with much fondness and gratitude for all that he gave so freely and generously to our church and to the Archdeaconry during his time as chaplain at Holy Trinity Utrecht from 2005 to 2012.  

In particular our prayers and thoughts go out at this time to Pam. 

John’s funeral will take place at All Saints’, Faringdon SN7 7HP on the 12th of July.  

May he rest in peace, and rise in glory.

In the love of Christ,


Chaplain Holy Trinity Church Utrecht and Anglican Church Zwolle

We all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
