Installing an Archdeacon

Vicar of Henfield Alastair Cutting is due to be Installed at Southwark Cathedral at 3pm on Sunday 14 April, the second Sunday after Easter. (Archdeacons have a stall in a cathedral, hence installation.) Alastair is one of  the three archdeacons being installed that day – further detail on the Southwark staff team (soon to be updated with the fresh appointments) is on the Southwark diocesan web site.

You don’t need a ticket for the service, but it would help to have an idea of numbers, so please use one of the sign-up sheets in our churches, or contact the office 01273 495532.

There is minimal parking near the cathedral; and as London Bridge train station is less than 5 minutes away, that would appear to be the best way to travel. From Hassocks, suggested trains are 12:54, getting to London Bridge at 14:05; or the 13:24 from Hassocks getting in at 14:35.
