Space - the final frontier

This picture shows St Michaels in the foreground, and the Trinity spire in the background.

It has been a special weekend at Trinity. Since September the church has been without a minister. But it looks as if they have made contact.

Over this weekend, the church's top choice from a list of applicants was invited to meet people, meet other ministers of the Church in Abingdon, and then preach with a view to becoming the minister.

The title of the sermon was 'Space - the final frontier.'

After the service the people of the church met, and decided if this was the right person for the job. When a new pope is chosen: black smoke means a split decision, and white smokes means a successor has been chosen.

(I'm not sure if Trinity follow the same convention but its likely they do.)
