Commencement of Ministry Service
March 13, 2024
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
You are warmly invited to join us for this milestone occasion, as we welcome our new Senior Minister Rev. Bruce Stanley to St Paul’s.
This will be a well-attended event, so we ask everyone to book a free ticket so we can manage numbers. The service will commence at 7pm sharp, so please arrive early to allow plenty of time for parking and seating. This will be a wonderful opportunity for us to formally welcome Bruce, Heather, Flynn, Jonah and Asher.
What is a commencement service? From our Bishop: Commencement services mark a special moment in the life of a church. They provide an opportunity for the wider community to celebrate with a parish as a new pastor and his family join a church. The service provides a public reminder of the serious responsibility rectors undertake as well as an opportunity to recognise the important partnership between a parish and the Diocese.
We will sing together, pray, hear from the bible, and support Bruce as he commits to caring for and shepherding our flock.
