One response to “Memories of St Thomas Becket”

  1. Dear Matthew and members of St Thomas’s,
    I am sorry that Jean and I won’t be able to be with you this coming
    Saturday for the 400th Anniversary Service. We are having work done on
    our house here in London and it is impossible to be away at this time.
    Moreover our daughter-in -law has just given birth to a son so it is
    good that we can around here in London this week. Nevertheless our
    thoughts and prayers will be with you all at you celebrate a great
    event in the history of the Chaplaincy, indeed in the Diocese of
    Europe. We give you our blessings for the future of the church in
    Hamburg; may it flourish as a beacon for Christ, not only for all
    English speaking people in Hamburg but for the other churches and
    communities there, as you reach out to them in ecumenical unity.
    We look back to our time in Hamburg as your last locum with great
    affection. You all made us feel so welcome and we enjoyed the
    fellowship we had with you all, and the excitement and exhilaration of
    living in such a diverse and beautiful city, with all its culture and
    vibrance. We miss it, despite living in an equally exciting city!

    With all best wishes to you all,
    Yours in Christ,
    Jean and Clifford Poole
