Winchester Cathedral was completely packed out today for Lavinia Owen to be given the Bishops Commission for Mission after the course that she attended last year.
I was really struck by how popular these courses were with 90 people from across the Diocese taking part in either BCM Pastoral, BCM Worship, BCM Children Families and Youth, BCM Growing Faith and BCM Evangelism. We currently have five people attending the courses at the moment and will of course welcome them this time next year as they are given their commissions.
Lavinia completed the BCM Pastoral. This gives her the Bishop’s authority to lead our Valley Visitors who wonderfully visit so many people during the week in our Parish
Well done Lavinia and thank you for putting all the time in to receive this Commission.
