Ordination of Rev Tom Armstrong

On Saturday 1st October, our dear brother, Rev Tom Armstrong was ordained a priest.  Our celebration took place at the John Pounds memorial church in Portsmouth.  He was ordained by the Rt Rev Terry Flynn, UECC presiding bishop. 
Our community used the New Sarum Missal for the first time, only recently promulgated in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Bishop Terry’s Episcopal Ordination. 

Our small corner of the vineyard grew that weekend.  The love that binds us, the freedom we celebrate and our openness to open a sacramental life to all who respectfully draw near was affirmed by this ordination.  Have a good look at the photos and be pleased to celebrate with us.
