Following their ordination to the priesthood on Saturday 4th July, we have been enjoying our new Assistant Curates as they preside at the Eucharist for the first time.
On Sunday 5th July, Revd Rachel Noël presided at Communion for the first time at St Mary’s Church Fordingbridge. As it was the patronal festival inside the church, the benefice service took place outside, in between the horses and the tractors.
On Sunday 12th July, Reverend Nicky Davies presided at communion for the first time at St Mary’s Church, Hale. It was a wonderful celebration, accompanied by the Hales Angels choir.
