It was a wonderful occasion on Sunday as we welcomed the Rev. Alison and her husband Peter to Newtown and Lozells. We were joined by many friends from St. Paul and St. Silas, from the Diocese of Birmingham, from other local churches, and from Rev. Alison's previous parishes in Leicester and Dunfermline. We gave a warm welcome to Alison, and together we offered our prayers for her ministry to come in this church and in this city.
Many thanks to all those who contributed to the day, including cleaning the church, setting up for lunch, organizing the catering and clearing up afterwards. Photos to follow on the frontpage and in the gallery!
