A SPECIAL service will be held to celebrate Rev Christine Holzapfel taking up the post of team rector for St Godwalds in Finstall and Bromsgrove’s All Saints Churches.
The service will be conducted by Graham Usher and Nikki Groarke, the Bishop and Archdeacon of Dudley, at 6pm on Sunday (October 12) at St Godwalds Church.
Christine took up the post of Priest in Charge of St Godwalds in Bromsgrove, along with Holy Trinity and St Mary’s in Dodford.
In 2012, Bromsgrove’s five Anglican churches officially became one parish and she became one of the team vicars in the new parish.
When Rev Chris Wingfield left Bromsgrove to take up his new post, she was asked if she would take on the role of team rector and, on Sunday, she will be instituted and inducted and the Bromsgrove parish team will be commissioned.
Everyone is welcome and, after the service, there will be refreshments in the church hall.
