Seven people from across the diocese, including our own Ruth Freeman, were licensed as Lay Ministers on Saturday October 14th at Winchester Cathedral.

It was a beautiful service, attended by many of us from St Leonards & St Ives, who travelled up in a coach to support Ruth.

The service contained a variety of new and traditional worship, and was enjoyed by all who went. It was lovely to be part of Ruth’s special day.
