Gloucester Cathedral
This service will mark a double celebration for West Cheltenham as our curate-to-be Tom Cook will be ordained alongside Jim Edie, a previous member of St Mark Church and centre manager of Oasis. Everyone is welcome to attend the service which will last approximately 1.5 hours. There will be a small crèche for children.
After ordination Tom will take up his curacy here in West Cheltenham, and Jim will become curate with Ros
Greenhalgh (a former West Cheltenham curate herself) in the South Warwickshire Benefice.
Please pray for Tom and Jim, and their families, as they both begin to make the transition from Trinity Theological College, Bristol to their respective curacies.

Looking after our children at St B’s

Please can we remind all parents/carers that you are responsible for ensuring your children are kept safe at all times before, during and after the service (apart from when they are in Lightzone). This includes not allowing younger children to go out of the church unaccompanied e.g. for the toilet - (there have been instances of people coming in off the street to use the toilets).
Thank you. DCC and Pat Bowen nominated person for St B's Safeguarding
