Kevin Martin was ordained at St Peter's Church last week, by Bishop Nicholas and joins us as curate.  Team Rector the Revd Helen Dawes has these words of thanks following the service: "An enormous THANK YOU to everyone who made Kevin's ordination such a joyous celebration! Thank you to the bishop's chaplain and office team for arranging the service and producing the service books, thank you to our musicians and choir, to the flower arrangers, bell ringers, church cleaners and to everyone who brought or served food at the party and to those who washed up afterwards. Thank you to Bishop Nick for leading us in glorious worship and to the Ven Vanessa Herrick for inspiring us with her words. Finally, thank you to everyone I'll realise I should have mentioned...Now we continue with the work of the Church, and for that, thanks be to God!"

 A service of thanksgiving, celebration and re-dedication marking 40 years since the re-opening of St Peter's Church took place on the 2nd July, with the Rt Revd Karen Gorham, Bishop of Sherborne.

The service was followed by a celebration tea; thanks to Mike Bailey for providing some photographic mementoes of the event, a few can be enjoyed here - showing off the inventive and wonderful work that went in to the flower festival which also took place at St Peter's that weekend.
