After Graeme’s last service on June 18th, we held a buffet lunch in the centre, and a presentation was made to Graeme and Steph as they leave to take up the post of curate at Totton, after Graeme’s ordination at Winchester on July 2nd.

We will miss them at All Saints, as they have been instrumental in setting up many of the children and youth activities at our church. Steph in particular has run the Sunday School, the Mother and Toddler Group, and Messy Church, and together they started the Adventurers group for older children. Graeme was the instigator of the modern service Amplify, which is on the first Sunday evening of each month. We shall miss their many gifts and talents, but I’m sure they will be very well received at the church in Totton, and we wish them all the best.
