Continuing Ministry – The Same Work But With New Authority

Archdeacon Geoff Johnston was given new authority under the Bishop’s licence to continue his valuable ministry of oversight in Spain, Portugal, Morocco and the Iberian islands, at a Eucharist during Bishop’s Council meeting in London on 16 and 17 October 2014.

Geoff and his wife Carol are leaving their parochial ministry in the south of Spain to return to Derbyshire where Geoff will continue his Archidiaconal work and Carol will continue as President of the Mothers Union in the Diocese.

Also during the Bishop’s Council Suffragan Bishop David was given new authority for his work in cooperation with Bishop Robert. The formal papers are known as “statutory instruments”.

We pray God’s blessing on these renewed ministry commitments.
