Maggie celebrates 40 years in ministry. 

After the 10am service on Sunday, 29 September, the congregation helped Maggie celebrate 40 years in ministry. Some of her 40 years was as a deaconess before she was ordained priest. At this special service on the feast of St Michael and All Angels, the ministry of ordained and lay people was affirmed. Many congratulations to Maggie for her commitment and service over the years -  and looking forward to many more.

Everlasting God,
you have ordained and constituted the ministries
of angels and mortals in a wonderful order:
grant that as your holy angels always serve you in heaven,
so, at your command,
they may help and defend us on earth;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
