Today, Rev Michael Last was licenced as the Priest to the Isla Deveron Group of Churches and to Gordon Chapel.
Bishop Mark Strange presided at a wonderful service during which many members of the congregations played a part, a choir sang, we shared in the Eucharist and this was all followed by a great buffet lunch.
In +Marks sermon he reminded us all that the ministry of our churches is shared by Rev Michael who will be as a shepherd to us, and ourselves – we have our part to play – including taking the Good News out and bringing sheep into the fold.
