Congratulations Allison

On Saturday October 15th many of church members of our parish went to Chester to see Allison Whiteley be formally licensed as a Reader by the Bishop of Birkenhead, the Rt. Revd Keith Sinclair. Allison pictured here with Mick, her husband, have been active members of our church for many years. Her licensing was the culmination of three years of study and enables her ministry to develop in serving the Church of God within the ministry team at St. Cross. It was a delight to welcome her family and friends, both to this occasion, and to St. Cross the following day when Allison preached her first sermon as a Reader. She follows in the footsteps of her father, who was a Reader himself.

 

Congratulations Allison, as you play your part in a new way, in helping the whole Church to participate in God’s mission to the world.
