St Anselms in Bermondsey

When he is not ministering at St James and St Anne, our honorary curate, Simon Lewis is working as Dean of the Community of St Anselm at Lambeth Palace. Today Simon brought the residential members of the community to share in our morning worship here at St James.

They led the prayers, did the readings, and two community members, one from the Bahamas and one from the US, shared their testimonies of how they came to be part of the community and what they have learnt from their 'ten months time for God' as part of this unique community based at the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

At the beginning of the service they all introduced themselves and told us where they came from: the US, Canada, Uganda (big cheers from the Ugandans in the congregation), Zambia, England and many other places besides.

It was great to have them with us, and to get an insight to what Simon is doing when he is not with us - and for the Community to meet the congregation of which Simon is a part on Sundays.
