In a licensing service on the evening of 21st July at St. Peter's church Patrick Senior became the new Associate Priest for the Benefice of Drighlington and Gildersome. The service was well attended with Bishop Paul of Kirkstall performing the ceremony. For the first time in what seems like an age, worshippers were encouraged to sing. The Archdeacon also took part in the proceedings in what was a heartwarming evening filled with hope for the future of our churches. Patrick will remain Associate Priest until the 29th August when, in a further ceremony, he will become the interim Priest in Charge of the Benefice.
