Visitors from Sweden
We are abolutley delighted that our next Choral Evensong on Sunday 12th October will feature the choir from our partner church in Vaxjo, Sweden
The service will be the final part of the series focussing upon the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and will be sung by the Choir of St Paul's, jointly with the Vaxjo Church Choir.
Our preacher will be the Rev’d Teresia Derlen, who works in the Buckingham Area of the Diocese but was brought up in Sweden, and who supplies the following resumé :
Teresia Derlén is born and raised in Sweden, and was ordained for the Church of Sweden in 2003. Before her ordination she had the chance to study for a year at Westcott House, Cambridge, and in 2012 she had the opportunity to come work for the Church of England. She was meant to come for eight months – it is now five and a half years later.
