District Apostle N. Barnes held a divine service in Cleary Park congregation on Sunday 9 October 2016.
The sermon was based on the Bible word taken out of the book of Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” In support the choir rendered the anthem “Take my Life and let it be”. The Bishop Stephens was called upon to serve the congregation.
During the divine service, 6 ministers were placed into retirement. The District Apostle thanked the brothers and their families for their contribution to God’s work over the years. Altogether, they served for 212 years in their respective ministries.
After retiring the ministers, 3 new Rectors were appointed to replace those who were retired.
After the divine service the District Apostle spent a few memorable moments with the retired ministers and newly placed Rectors.
