Half way through December and we have already had some wonderful Advent and Christmas services – here are the snaps we have so far:
This year saw more people at our Remembrance services than ever before. There were an estimated 9000 at the short act of remembrance at the war memorial and nearly 500 at the main service in church. Our main church service met with particular praise and tried to get the balance between familiarity and challenge. Both well known hymns and those with a deeper message for future peace were chosen and helped to set the tone. Here are some snaps from a moving and emotional day.
Supporting and encouraging young people is central to the Christian faith. Here are just some of the snaps of the wonderfully rewarding things that we have done with young people so far this year.
We are half way through Fr Rob’s year acting as Mayor’s Chaplain to the Mayor of Bromley. Here are some snaps:

Having served the length of her training curacy, Cathy found herself a new post in Sidcup. It is always such a privilege to see a trainee grow. And always sad that, just as they get up to speed, we have to let them go. But this was a fond farewell – April 2018
