A warm welcome back to Rev'd Peter and Barbara Jordan

peter and barbaraRev'd Peter and Barbara Jordan have returned for a second time to lead our ministry in Bordeaux and their first Service with us was on Sunday 26th February.

They write, "To re- introduce ourselves it’s best to say that we are both Merseysiders – Peter being born on the right side of the river which he claims to be the correct side i.e. Liverpool and Barbara on the left side, on the Wirral. Since beginning our ‘pensionable work for the Lord’ we have come together to Wallasey, on the Wirral where we are now very pleased to have our own little home after many years of living in various vicarages.

Our married life, which began in 1965, when we were very young, has taken us to homes in Jamaica, Ollerton (Notts), Durham, Nottingham, London, Liverpool and Barcelona. During this time we have become Christians (in Ollerton), been called to train for full-time ministry (Durham) and served the Lord in churches in the others. We have also become parents of five children, two of them by adoption, (all five are married), and now also have seven (almost eight!) grandchildren. Last summer we enjoyed a great celebration with all our family of 50 years of marriage. We also rejoiced in the publication of our life story – 'Someday I'm gonna write' – and will bring some copies with us!

To go to Barcelona in 2002 for Peter to be the Chaplain of the English-speaking Anglican church there was a great privilege and joy and we are very happy for our association with ICS and the Diocese in Europe to continue in our 'retirement' and look forward to coming to Bordeaux."

 

Au Revoir and Merci to Rev'd David and Margaret Kirby

As the song goes, "We've got that joy, joy, joy, joy, down in our heart"!

We are delighted to share photos of the Family Communion Service today, Rev'd David Kirby's last service in Bordeaux - with thanks to the Kirbys for all they've done - and a Happy Birthday to Holi.
