Sherwood United Reformed Church
was full to overflowing on Saturday 17th September
for the Induction of Revd Peter Meek
as our New Synod Moderator
- there were around 230 people
and several has to sit in the church entrance
where they could hear but not see what was happening!
The address was given
by Revd Howard Sharpe,
Moderator of Mersey Synod
and a long time friend of Peter.
A Further challenge to us all
was given by the drama
written and presented by Laura and Beccy,
which invited us all to open our churches
to people who are not 'church shaped'.
General Assembly Moderator
Revd Dr Kistry Thorpe
presided over this uplifting ceremony.
The usual 'Promises' were made
as Peter was inducted to the post . . .
. . . followed by the traditional round
of ecumenical welcomes.
