On Sunday 30th June, we had a special service at Bignor to mark the 25th anniversary of Canon John Green's ordination. It was the same year as women were first allowed to become priests, so we marked that anniversary too. Taking the service were Revd Jo Burke, Revd Reji Raj-Singh and Revd Colin Datchler, chaplain of Seaford College.
