It’s that time of year when we congratulate students from throughout the region who have flown the Sarum nest, pleased and proud they have chosen to train here at the Centre for Formation in Ministry.
We look forward to welcoming back the new deacons in the next stage of their learning learning journey. Here are a few photos from the weekend (we’ll add more as they come in from elsewhere):

And finally congratulations to all new Deacons from the Diocese of Canterbury, especially Sarum graduate Helen Gunton (pictured left), who did her Sarum Centre for Formation in Ministry course commuting from Jersey where she’ll be serving her curacy.
