Alice Dunstall, Chaplain at Trinity School, gave the address.
COMMISSIONING OF NEW RURAL DEAN
Revd. Martin Booth was commissioned as the new Rural Dean of Sevenoaks at a service on Thursday, 6 October 2016, held at St. Mary's Church, Riverhead with Dunton Green. The service was led by the Ven. Clive Mansell, Archdeacon of Tonbridge, with representatives from Churches from around the Deanery attending. You can listen to a short audio extract from the service (the formal Commissioning) by following this link.
Do have a read of the latest 'Vicar's Thoughts', dated 17 September 2016, about 'The Dishonest Steward' and the message the parable might have for us today- accessed from the main menu on the left-hand side of this front page.
The Vicar will be holding young people's (4-5pm, except from 4:30pm on 30 Oct) and separate adults' (5-6pm, except from 5:30pm on 30 Oct) confirmation classes spread over four Sunday afternoons starting from 30th October 2016. These will lead up to a confirmation service somewhere in the Shoreham Deanery on Thursday, 24th November 2016 (evening); details to follow. If you are interested in attending the classes please email or telephone Revd Martin. Please note: there is no commitment to actually going on to be confirmed, so if you are interested just in meeting up and hearing a little bit more about Christianity and what Christians believe then this could be just the thing for you! Revd Martin
