St Columba's Crosspool

Open to God, Welcoming All

Sally joins the team

Last Sunday we were delighted to welcome our Archdeacon, Martyn Snow (seen here chatting with Sally’s husband Kon) to license Sally to her ministry as Children and Families Worker at St. Columba’s.  In a colourful and celebratory service the children helped re-tell Jesus’s story of the wedding feast, complete with balloons, streamers and Australian party food, which the kids munched on happily while Martyn reminded us that the ministry of a Deacon like Sally is to reach out and be alongside people who are “on the edge”.  He reminded us that God’s kingdom is one to which all are invited, and from which none are excluded.  Afterwards the children’s leaders donned Australian rugby shirts to serve up Sally’s welcome cake, iced in the colours of the Australian flag!    We’re already enjoying the warmth and creativity that Sally brings to our ministry team.
