Celebrating our new Curate

Ordination_20190914

St Edmund’s turned up to the Cathedral on Saturday 14 September to cheer on our new Curate James Gilder who was ordained as deacon. Following the service, his friends, family, former colleagues and new congregation carried on the celebration at The Transition Gallery for prosecco and cake. The following day at our 10 o’clock Sunday Service, James made his Declaration of Assent in front of the congregation, before everyone once again joined in cake and wine continuing the celebration.
