The Collation and Induction of our new Rector was held before a packed congregation at St James’ on Wednesday 4th May. The solemn service was led by The Right Revd. Keith Sinclair, Bishop of Birkenhead & The Venerable Dr Michael Gilbertson Archdeacon of Chester, accompanied by The Rural Dean Revd. Mark Hart. The new Rector Revd. Malcolm Cowan was supported by his wife Joyce, a large number of family, friends and members of our choir & congregation, who enthusiastically responded to each part of the service and in the singing of the hymns. The hymns were Guide me O thou great redeemer, I cannot tell, O Jesus I have promised, Great is thy faithfulness, and Lord for the years. A cross-section of the many clergy present, together with members of the local community gave special welcomes to the new Rector during the service. Afterwards a reception was held in the Parish Hall, with nibbles and wine provided by Janet Milton and her team.
