Milton Methodist Church was packed on Sunday 2nd July for the special Circuit Service to commission our two new Community Chaplains to Great Western Park (GWP) and to bless the motor-home, "Hope" which is their peripatetic base.

The service was led by Revd Katherine Pickering, with the sermon given by the Northampton Director of Mission, Revd Jill Marsh.

Sarah and Libby the new Community Chaplains both spoke about their new roles and were commissioned by Revd Keith Underhill, the Circuit Superintendent.

Family, friends and ecumenical colleagues and partners helped to swell the numbers at this service, a special occasion that gave us the opportunity to celebrate the culmination of many years hard work and planning being finally realised.

Everyone was then invited to go out into the car park for the final part of the service, in which "Hope" was prayed for and blessed, with the sprinkling of water from Rosemary sprigs.

Please pray for Libby and Sarah in their work and for all those who live, work and play on GWP.
