Julia is ordained!

We had a wonderful day on Saturday celebrating God's goodness to Julia over the past few years as she has followed His call into ministry.  The service traced the journey from God's early promptings through to the people who have helped test and confirm the call. Roger Standing came from Spurgeon's College to officiate and to preach and  Janet Quarry came representing BMS World Mission.  It was great!!

Thank you to those who came to celebrate and pray with the new Rev Julia Henley and for those who sent good wishes! 

It really was such an encouraging afternoon, and one that Julia will remember for many years to come.

'For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.  For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.'
2 Tim 1:6-7
