A word from the Vicar......

Our Hearts and prayers go out to Denise, Christine and Peter as they journey through this month towards their Ordination in Chelmsford Cathedral on June 30th. What difference will this make? In some ways little: in others so much. Our local churches have for some time recognised the calling of Denise and Christine to senior leadership. Ordination marks the formal recognition of this by the national church. It comes alongside a commissioning to serve (as Deacons) the villagers in our 4 parishes. God wiling hey will be Priested in June 2014. It is going to bring some changes to the way we work. They will truly be the equal of any other curate in the Church of England and therefore taking an increasing number of funerals and will share with me the joy of baptising children and adults alike. For the first year they unlikely to be taking any weddings and will not be presiding at communion. They will truly be part of `Transforming the ministry' we are involved in. Do please hold them in your prayers and support them in their work.
