Last Sunday, the team service was at Sandon Church where we celebrated Geoffrey Smith's 50th anniversary as an ordained minister.
The church was packed with brothers and sisters from his former parishes and all over the team who came specially.
It was an emotional time for both Geoff and his wife Margaret and their family and for us.
After the service as everybody stayed behind for a massive buffet organised by all the wardens, we had the opportunity to congratulate them and spend some special time chatting with them.
May the Lord continue to bless them abundantly and strengthen them.
In Jesus-Christ we ask. Amen
