At the end of yesterday's service we said goodbye to our deacon The Rev'd Brenda Johnson. Brenda retires after 14 years of service at the Church of the Good Shepherd and the community of Murrayfield. She will be greatly missed, especially by the Messy Church Community, Brenda was a founder of the Messy Church community in Murrayfield.
The congregation have valued and benefitted from having a vocational deacon on the clergy team and Brenda has modelled that ministry superbly alongside the priests.Her ministry of service in the community has been much valued by very many people.
We sent Brenda off with various gifts and a cake and coffee party, with her special request for marmalade and morning rolls. It was a party enjoyed by everyone.
