December 10, 2014At an Advent Carol Service in St John's Gowerton, Bishop John licensed a new group of lay worship leaders, a youth worker and commended the work of the Diocesan Fair Trade Champions. The five new worship leaders are already heavily involved in the life of the parish in lots of different ways and this seems a natural progression in their ministry. Congratulations to Sue Rumbelow, Sue McLeish, Jean Thomas, Judy Thomas and Sian Smith. Sian was also licensed as a youth worker. The Bishop also took the opportunity to thank Roger and Barbara Harris for their work as Diocesan Fair Trade Champions, a role which takes them throughout the Diocese encouraging parishes to use more Fair Trade products. It was an afternoon of celebration!
