Comings and goings: Church life is full of them

Sunday 4 May was a significant date in the life of Willetton Uniting Church and in the ministry of Rev Caroline Gepp. It marked the conclusion of her 10 year placement with this congregation. Caroline conducted a special liturgy of Eucharist and as part of the service the moderator, Rev Ron Larkin, presided over the formal release and breaking of the ties from her induction vows made at Willetton 10 years ago.

With a full church and some joyful singing – not to mention the sumptuous morning tea – the occasion was well and truly marked. Caroline leaves with the love of the congregation and the expectation that her future ministry will be fulfilling.

As is now the custom when ministers leave Willetton Uniting Church, a rose was planted in her honour in the church garden.
