THE REVD CHRISTINE CROMPTON’S  RETIREMENT LUNCH CELEBRATION

 

It was a wonderful celebration of Christine's time at St Hilda's, made special by all who came to give their support and wish her the very best in the future.  Gifts were given in appreciation to and from Christine and were very well received.                                                                                                                                                                                            Christine was quite poorly and very nearly didn't make it at all.  The vicar stepped in to preside and preach, helping to make it doable for Christine.  It was a lovely service... The Presentation of Christ in the Temple, (Candlemas).  Lots of people came to join in the celebration and help make Christine's retirement special, I think it was! 

Thank you to all those who came and for the many contributions of food, one of these was bread, made in the shape of a C, C for Christine... lovely!

The Revd Christine Crompton is Retiring

ST HILDA'S AND THE REVD CHRISTINE CROMPTON

When Christine isn't preaching on a Sunday or Wednesday morning,  

she can usually be found serving tea and coffee at Knit and Natter and Prayer Cafe.

                                                               

                                                                 

She came to St Hilda's fifteen years ago and has been an inspiration to so many people. 

To say thank you, doesn't seem enough, but we will do our best!

On Sunday the 28th January at 11:00am, Christine will be both President and Preacher,

for the last time in her present role.

Straight after the service we move to the church hall. where we will celebrate those fifteen years over lunch.

++++++

We are very pleased to say, Christine is not leaving St Hilda's completely, she will still be around,

just wearing a different hat!
