On Tuesday the 28th of February we welcomed out new Vicar Fr Jordan Greatbatch with a formal induction service. The service was led by Bishop Peter Carrell and Archdeacon Megan Herles-Mooar.
Bishop Peter delivered a sermon of advice, instruction, and encouragement with readings taken from Numbers 11:16, 17, 24–29, Ephesians 4:7–16, and Luke 12:35–44.
The service was also our first full run of our new live streaming system. We are very grateful for Grant Hadley who set the system up and sourced equipment for us.
