Father Gavin’s 25th Anniversary
Father Gavin celebrates 25 years as vicar of St Augustine’s. The Candlemas Eucharist holds a special place in Gavin’s affections and a full congregation joined him in a moving tribute to his wonderful ministry among us.
Afterwards he cut a cake baked specially for him by Alison Burtt which depicted the Altar Frontal. A cheque for £600 was presented by Churchwarden Jean Cartwright and champagne and flowers were presented to Louise. A remarkable day. In less than three more years Gavin will pass Samuel Luffman’s record as longest serving vicar of the parish
A Safe Church
St Augustine’s Parish Church is committed to:
The care, nurture of, and respectful pastoral ministry with, all children, young people and all adults
The safeguarding and protection of all children, young people and all adults
The establishing of safe, caring communities which provide a loving environment where victims of abuse can report or disclose abuse and where they can find support and best practice that contributes to the prevention of abuse
The Church of England works in partnership with other Christian Churches and other agencies in delivering safeguarding. St Augustine’s will follow legislation, guidance and recognised good practice in all these principles.
