On Friday this week, 6 November, there will be a service of welcome for the Borough of Barnet for the new Bishop of Edmonton and Archdeacon of Hampstead at 7.00 p.m. at St Mary and St John School, Hendon (Bennet House campus on Sunningfield Road, NW4 4QR). All are welcome to attend.
Bishop Robert writes:
I am really grateful for the warm welcome which John and I have received since becoming Bishop and Archdeacon in the Edmonton Episcopal Area. We do extent a warm welcome to each and every one of you to this special service ... As you will be aware, John Hawkins and I are currently are at the beginning of a nine month listening exercise and the services of welcome are really to kick start that process. We would like as many lay people and clergy as possible to attend the event.
There will be refreshments afterwards but please do come along and pray for your local area, please pray that we are listening well to God’s inspiration and guidance for our Area and let’s come together in order to perceive what the next chapter will be in the Edmonton Episcopal Area.
I very much look forward to welcoming you.
