New Chaplain for Copenhagen

On Saturday 16th June, the Revd Smitha Prasadam was installed and licensed as the new chaplain of St Alban's church, Copenhagen in a wonderful and joyful service. Friends and colleagues joined the congregation in the Danish capital and the service was led by Archdeacon Colin.

Revd Prasadam has described herself as a priest, theologian, apostle, evangelist and steward. She was born in South India but has lived most of her life in Britain.
Describing her childhood and faith she has said: “My love of God began in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh as a very young child at my grandmother’s feet where, as family and neighbourhood we gathered nightly on her verandah in the cool of the evening to feast on Scripture, prayer and fellowship in the Gospel. This came as naturally as breathing and permeates everything.”
