New Rural Dean

Published November 13, 2015 by admin in News

People from all over Hitchin deanery (comprising Hitchin, Letchworth and surrounding villages) came to St. Mark’s on Thursday 12th November to support and pray for Revds. Jane Mainwaring and Darren Collins as Archdeacon Jonathan commissioned them respectively to be Rural Dean and Assistant Rural Dean of Hitchin with responsibility for the oversight and pastoral care of all the clergy and their churches in their area. The service was a simple but moving one based on Iona worship with great hymns chosen by Jane and Darren and a thought-provoking reflection by Archdeacon Jonathan. Over refreshments afterwards we all had a chance to chat to fellow Christians from other churches. Jane and Darren will make a great team and our deanery will be in excellent hands for the next five years, their term of office.
