On Sunday 24 July, The Revd Caroline Throup was licensed as the new Chaplain at the Anglican Church in Basel.

It was a long-awaited and joyous occasion with many congregation members present to welcome Caroline to Basel.

Richard Bromley from ICS presented and Archdeacon Peter Hooper led the Licensing Service. There was Worship from both congregations, a mixture of choral and contemporary, and after the service a special cake was served baked by Ukrainian church members!

Special thanks go to Anne Lowen for all her hard work in organising most of the day!

Please pray for Caroline and the church in Basel as they get to know each other, pray for Caroline in her ministry, and for her and Ian to settle in quickly. More information on the church is here.
