2014 - Institution and Licensing Service 6 July 2014
Sunday 6th July 2014 was a very special day and a new beginning in the life of the Anglican Church Twente at St. Mary’s Weldam. On this beautifully sunny day The Reverend Drs Alja Tollefsen was licensed as their Chaplain. The Institution and Licensing service was conducted by The Reverend Canon Meurig Williams, Acting Archdeacon for North West Europe. This memorable and moving service was enjoyed by many members and friends of St. Mary’s and was followed by a lovely outdoor reception.
The photograph of the licensing has caught the text on the wall, which was also the Gospel reading of the day: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28.
