One of the big lessons that Martin has taught the staff team whilst he’s been Vicar at St Paul’s, has been the importance of ending well – whenever a chapter of life comes to an end, it’s wonderful if we can finish with happy memories and positive reflections.
That won’t be a problem with Martin’s leaving day on Sunday 18 July. There will be plenty of good times to look back on. Unfortunately, the current covid restrictions add a degree of complexity to our desire to make sure that the end of this chapter of St Paul’s is marked really well. We want to invite you to join us, however you are able to, to celebrate Martin’s ministry amongst us, to say goodbye, and to release him into a new chapter with the Army.
Sunday 18 July
Due to covid restrictions there is a limit on the number of people we can seat in the arena for the 2 services and the number of people we can accommodate in the 4 gardens - please book tickets below, but be mindful that our whole church family is invited and we would like as many people to come and say goodbye to Martin as we can over the course of the day.
