Stephen Cottrell, the Bishop of Chelmsford, has ordained 31 Deacons.
Delivering his “Deacons’ Ordination Charge” Bishop Stephen discussed the five definitions of the word “charge” in the dictionary and unpacked the meaning of his Charge for the new Deacons.
He concluded: “…be charged by God. Be constantly reminded and resourced by the beauty of Christ.”
The Ordination Services were held at Chelmsford Cathedral on 30 September 2017.
