Teresia has announced that she has been appointed to be the Assistant Priest at the Swedish Church in London. Her responsibilities there will include the pastoral care of the Swedish population of Britain and Ireland. We expect Teresia's final Sunday in the benefice by Sunday February 10th, 2019. We will all be very sad to see Teresia leave the benefice, but this is an excellent role for the next stage in her ministry. She has been here for seven years, and there will be a great deal to celebrate over the next few months as we prepare for her final Christmas with us and her departure in February.
