Leipzig English Church celebrated the licensing of The Reverend Jon Haines as Chaplain on Sunday 16 October. It was a joyful and moving occasion, highlighting the precious value of the church as those bought by the blood of Jesus to be His bride, and the privilege of serving Christ together.

Afterwards members gathered from across the three congregations to share lunch on a significant day for the church, which was also celebrating its 27th anniversary. Jon was licensed by the Archdeacon, the Venerable Dr Leslie Nathaniel. 

Jon moved to Leipzig with his wife, Gabrielle, and three children from All Saints' Eastbourne, UK. Please do pray for the Haines family and LEC as they seek to hold out the hope of the gospel in Leipzig.
