To all of you who had planned to go on Monday evening to St James, Elstead, to celebrate the Institution of our lovely former curate Hannah Moore, please note that the Institution will be a small private one and there will be a celebration at a later date.
Here is a message from Bishop Jo, but before that, here is a message from us all to you Hannah. We wish you every happiness and blessing in your new role and our prayers are with you. Elstead, Thursley, Shackleford and Peper Harow, you have a gem coming to you!
“Bishop Jo is very sorry to announce a change of plans in relation to the Institution of the Rev’d Hannah Moore and the Licensing of the Revd Delia Orme on Monday owing to the corona virus. Although Hannah will still begin her ministry from next week, the celebration of new ministry in Elstead, Thursley, Shackleford and Peper Harow will happen at a later date when circumstances permit. In the meantime, all regular church services continue as normal and clergy seek to be available pastorally to those in need, in person or by phone, adapting as necessary for the sake of protecting those who are vulnerable or anxious at this time.”
