The Bishop’s Badge

Presentation of the Bishop’s Badges, Best Project Awards
and Certificates of Excellence

Sunday 28th September 2014 at 3.00pm.

The Bishop’s Badge has been awarded to Thomas and Elaine Bradley on Nick Grayson’s recommendation. This award is for outstanding love and service to both Parish and Church Communities.

On September 28th 2014 members of the congregation at St Mary’s Church attended the Choral Evensong Service on the Feast of St Michael and All Angels at The Cathedral of All Saints Derby. This service was held as a Celebration of the Presentation of Bishop’s Badges, Best Project Awards and Certificates of Excellent.

We were all very proud to go and support Tom and Elaine when they were presented with the awards. The service at the Cathedral was a sung Evensong with the choir and the awards were presented to 129 recipients. We all greatly enjoyed the lovely service and the singing, a wonderful occasion for two very special people. The cathedral was packed with supporters, and it was a     beautiful sunny day very much in keeping with how everyone was feeling. Thank you Nick for putting them forward, and the support given to St Mary’s Church.                                                 Gill Housley
