Alan's First Mass

Alan with his training incumbent Rev Canon Rachel Mann and Bishop Mark

Before the service, Bishop Mark blessed Alan's Stole and Chasuble

Alan certainly took the people of St Nicholas' outside their comfort zone as the service was Very High Church with him wearing a Biretta and the use of incense.  During the service, Bishop Mark preached and Alan was careful to remember all of those people who are part of his spiritual journey; he was very kind about the people of Hey, 20 of whom were at the service.

Mission Action Plan

The MAP process is part of the broader work being undertaken in the Diocese of Manchester. You may remember the first part of the “Run the Race” initiative; this is “the Next Lap” to ensure that parishes are “Fit for Mission”. This means looking at structures and resources to make sure we can fulfil our role in society and achieve the mission we aim for in our own communities. 

The MAP can be viewed here
