What an amazing privilege it feels to sit and write this, my first newsletter for the Trinity Bromley United Reformed Church magazine. It symbolises both the start of something new but also recognises the deep heritage in which I follow. The photographs in the Sessions Room are a tangible reminder of the Ministers who have gone before; and of course I also want to acknowledge the huge contribution that both Bryn and Sue have given in more recent times.
I have already met some wonderful people, each with a unique story to tell, each with special gifts to share. I really hope to have the opportunity to meet with all members before too long. For God calls us into community both with one another and with the Triune God. It is together that we seek God’s will, and together that we are the people of God in the wider community of Bromley and beyond.
I do hope that everyone enjoyed the Ordination and Induction Service. A huge amount of background planning and organisation went into this to make it such a special occasion, and I want to say an enormous thank you to everyone involved.
Equally thank you to all who helped organise the programme of works on the Manse so that it can be a home where hospitality can be offered once we have settled in.
I consider it a huge honour to serve not one, but two United Reformed Churches here in Bromley. Each has an important role to play and a unique contribution to make.
So as we all look to the future I want to thank everyone for the wonderful welcome that has been extended to the Warmington family. May we all seek God’s vision as we journey forward together.
