It has been six weeks since I was licenced as your new chaplain here in London. Gosh time does fly! But how easy it has been. Rev. Anne did everything she could to make sure things were ready for me, helping prepare my welcome service and keeping all the administration up to date.
Even though I have been left loads of information, lists, addresses, action plans there is still so much to learn. Especially important is getting to know the Deaf community in London and how I can serve them as Jesus’ representative. Everyone has been so kind, but please continue to help me get to know who is who… there are lots of names and faces for me to learn.
Some of you may think that it was a big change for me to come to London from Devon and you would be right. However, I have lived in London about 25 years ago when I was training to be a Registered nurse at St. Bartholomews Hospital, West Smithfield and Homerton Hospital in Hackney. It is almost like travelling back along memory lane… but how things have changed in that time.
Today I have spent a long time updating the Deaf Church website and hopefully all the information is correct. I am hoping in the future to add information in B.S.L. but my office is not quite ready for filming. But let’s hope I get that up and running during this year. Any ideas of what other information would be useful on the website please let me know.
