Licensing Service for Revd. Jonathan Hall St Johns, Sandown - 18th August 2018
On   Saturday,   August   18th   around   two   hundred   people   gathered   at   St   John’s   Church   in   Sandown   to   celebrate   the   Licensing   of   Revd Jonathan   Hall   as   Priest   in   Charge   of   St   John’s,   Sandown   and   St   Blasius,   Shanklin   by   the   Bishop   of   Portsmouth.   This   completes   a   newly formed team of Clergy in Sandown Bay. The service was a joyous mixture of formal procedure and lively singing. Jonathan   was   previously   Rector   of   East   Cowes   and   Whippingham   and   Area   Dean   for   the   West   Wight.      He   then   moved   to   Kent   before   the lure of the Island drew him and his wife Erica, back. Brenda   Ellison,   a   churchwarden   at   St.   John’s   said   “We   have   a   very   good   team   of   people   who   have   all   worked   hard   for   today.   It   is gratifying to welcome so many people to our church “ Revd   Tony   Richards,   who,   with   the   help   of   retired   clergy,   has   been   holding   the   fort   during   the   Interregnum,   said   he   was   very   much looking forward to working closely with Jonathan in the future. Bob   Crawley,   a   churchwarden   at   St   Blasius   remarked   that   it   had   been   many   years   since   they   had   had   a   paid   minister.   “We   are   all   thrilled and are looking forward to engaging in Mission with the other Bay churches under Jonathan’s leadership” he said.
