Goodbye Stephie Holmes – ceramicist

Last Sunday we had the sad pleasure of saying good-bye to two talented and creative Christian young women.

Stephie had been with us for 4 years during her course at Brighton University. She leaves to take up a career in her chosen craft of Ceramics.

Katharine Kofoed-Nielsen nee Crompton

Katharine had been with us for three years during her Masters at Brighton University, and her two years as Associate Worker. She leaves to get married and serve God in Peru.

She doesn’t look too sad about it, does she?

Samuel and Katharine’s wedding

The Vikings used to come over to England and consume our food, remove our property, and take our women.

…It seems that they’re still doing it.

But in this case we were delighted to be part of it – that is, the wedding of our Associate Worker Katharine Crompton to Danish Theological Student Samuel Kofoed Nielsen on Friday 4th July at Bishop Hannington Church. There was a cake-reception at the church followed by a meal and speeches (many, many speeches – in the Danish style) at Hollingbury Golf Club.

All in all it was a splendid and joyful occasion.

Our prayers and best wishes go to the happy couple. Their plan is to serve God as missionaries in Peru – but first they have over a year of training ahead of them.

When there are some more official photos available we will put them on view.

What a delightful way to express partnership in the gospel with another SGP church
