Civic Service

Sunday, July 1, 2018

On July 1st St Bridget’s hosted a Civic Service to mark the beginning of Geoffrey Watt’s year as Mayor of Wirral. Geoffrey, his wife and Mayoress Anne, and his children Caroline and John, who served as crucifer and read lessons, are all long standing members of our congregation. The service took the form of a choral matins with the choir of Birkenhead School Chapel, under the direction of Philip Robinson, with Jon Barton playing the organ. The service was taken by the Revd David Chester, who will serve as Mayor’s chaplain (as he did for Gerry Ellis). David also preached the sermon.
