Town Centre Chaplaincy

This morning at Trinity the service was taken by an army chaplain. A chaplain is a minister who does not serve in a church but in a workplace, hospital, or even town centre.

The idea of a Town Centre Chaplaincy is being explored by these two men (Colin Pattenden from Ock Street Baptist Church and Richard Bittleston from Trinity), and some willing volunteers.
The window behind them is a very well known feature at Trinity Church. It is based on a window of the seven virtues at New College in Oxford. At Trinity there are only five virtues: Mercy, Faith, Charity, Hope, Justice. Below it says 'To the Glory of God, and in loving memory of their parents - This window is dedicated by the children of John Creemer and Elizabeth Clarke - 1906.

So which two virtues did not make the cut then?
