A New Deacon!

On Saturday 28 November, we were overjoyed to gather at the Cathedral amongst many others to pray for Andy as he was ordained to the diaconate. The Rev’d Andy Wallis is being licensed to us at St Luke’s, and so joins our clergy team in a nonstipendiary capacity. We are so glad to have Andy and John among us as Andy makes this new beginning in ministry. We are pictured here with The Rt Rev’d Ross Bay, Bishop of Auckland, immediately following the service at Holy Trinity Cathedral.
