COMMISSIONING SERVICE IN ST JOHN’S ON SUNDAY 23RD SEPTEMBER AT 5 PM

Our new Learning Community is growing and we would like to invite you to join us in St John’s Church on Sunday 23rd September at 5pm for a Service to commission Helena Power and Sharon Smith as the new children and family chaplains in the Wellington and District Team Ministry. Helena is ministering in Rockwell Green School and across the Team and Sharon will be based in West Buckland.

At this Service we will also pray for people from St John’s Church (in particular Judith, Fiona, Sue and John) who are exploring their contribution to the Learning Community and God’s call into new lay ministries and chaplaincies.

The Service is your chance both to support people you know involved in the Service and to find out more about the emerging lay chaplaincies and new ministries that people are being called to explore. The Rev’d Mike Haslam, our diocesan chaplaincy development advisor, will be joining us for this Service. He is also running some chaplaincy training for our Team in the New Year - so do come along to find out more about this up coming opportunity.

The Service will be followed by refreshments and a chance to chat to those involved.
