Three new Caleb Stream deacons ordained

Three new deacons were ordained by the Bishop of London in a joyful service at St Michael’s Chester Square on Saturday 24 September.

Mark Beard (St Michael, Chester Square), Celia Bowring (Christ church Turnham Green) and  Ruwani Gunawardene (St James the Less, Pimlico) have trained and discerned through the Caleb Stream. The Caleb Stream is revitalising the church by preparing experienced leaders who are called to serve in their local context as self-supporting ordained ministers. Through a one-year pathway for ordained ministry in the Church of England, the Caleb Stream is designed specifically for mature and experienced lay leaders. It overlaps the formal selection process and training, preparing candidates for ordination and local deployment after 12 months.
