Tim was licensed during the 6.30pm service by Bishop Mike Hill of Bristol who preached an amazing sermon which you can listen to here.

An estimated 70+ people went from St John’s to join Tim and Kate for this service, about half by coach from St John’s and half in their own transport.IMG_2024

Folk from Christ Church welcomed us when we arrived and we were entertained to a delicious spread of food and drink. The licensing service followed a ‘church weekend at home’ and it was obvious that lots of exciting things had been going on – including a bouncy castle on the grass outside!IMG_2025

    Please would it be possible for a sign-up sheet to be made available so that those who intend to attend Tim’s licensing can share lifts/book a minibus or coach?
