The evening of Sunday 13th September was very special. Over 120 friends joined together at St Mary's Church as we held a special Farewell Eucharist to bid goodbye to our curate Rev Antony Kirby who has been with us for four years. We gave thanks for his time with us, for his encouragement, his kindness and his journeying with us.
Antony and his wife Debs were presented with gifts including a clerical waistcoat, two clerical shirts, a necklace, a cheque and a bible which has been signed by members of our congregation. We hope that when he opens the bible, seeing our signatures will remind him of his time with us, and also remind him that our prayers and love go with him and Debs as they continue their journey.
