Most of us only go to Church for weddings, christenings, funerals and perhaps a Christmas Carol Service. But at 7.30 pm on 16th March there is the Institution of a new Rector for the Parish of St Lawrence Church and All Saints’, Little Bookham
This event, open to all, does not occur often and is followed by a reception in the St Lawrence Church Hall. And if like many you do not know what an Institution and Induction is all about, it is when a priest becomes a rector or vicar. The form of service is called an Institution and Induction. The priest must be presented and instituted by the Bishop.
In this instance we are delighted to welcome our new Rector, the Reverend Amanda (Mandy) MacVean who will be formally instituted and inducted on Wednesday 16th March. This will be followed by a reception in the Church Hall when we can get to meet Mandy.
