Steve & Andrea - All Saints says goodbye

Read by Jackie Smith at the 10:30am Service on 12th July 2020

Good Morning

It’s really nice to see you all here this morning, I’ve been following the service on line every Sunday,  ‘ but it is lovely to see friends actually in person in Gods House,

Im up here this morning to let Steve and Andrea know how much we have appreciated all that they have brought to All saints, Steve has been our vicar for the past 12 years,  and Andrea of course was a Teacher at the school, and not only has Steve blessed us as a congregation, he has built friendships and made us a family,  ‘I’ve heard it said, that a vicars job is easy, because they only work on a Sunday, these people are deluded, a Vicars job as I’ve realised over the ears is a very hard job, it takes on so many different roles, too many to mention. Well Today is Steve’s last day as Vicar, and to say a huge Thank you, I would like to present steve and Andrea with this gift, which the  congregation have happily donated too, please take it home and open it at your leisure,  we would  all like to wish you both  a very happy and well deserved retirement,  I’m sure God has many plans for your future, and I’m sure you will spend  lots of time chilling with your family and your beautiful grand children, ‘ so all that’s left to say, is we at All Saints' wish you all the happiness in the world,  x
