    Tea and thank you for retired clergy

    The afternoon tea for retired clergy, widows and their guests has long been part of the Bishopscourt summer season, each alternate year. With Covid 19 restrictions, the 2020 event moved online. Over 60 participants in a Zoom gathering received a cream tea by courier from Devon, arriving in time to share it on-line with friends old and new.

    Bishop David said, “It is really important that we make the time to give thanks to those who have been part of the family of the church’s ministry in times past, and many of whom are still serving voluntarily in retirement. It took a little imagination, but we were determined not to let the pandemic defeat us”.
