We had the great privilege of welcoming Rt Revd Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford, and Ven Mike Lodge, Archdeacon of Southend, to All Saints Chafford Hundred, for the licensing and installation of Revd Charlie Kosla.
A joyous occasion filled with warmth and fellowship, Charlie was welcomed by representatives of the local community, as well as the wider church around the area.
On the day we celebrated Epiphany, the Venerable Mike Lodge, Archdeacon Of Southend, asked us if that means Christmas is now finished? How might the story continue in our own lives, and how might we use the gifts we’ve been given in service to God?
It was great to then have Archdeacon Mike license the Revd Tony Burford within the Team as an Associate Minister. Tony received a very warm reception from all those gathered, and the whole Team has welcomed him enthusiastically.
