Commissioning of chaplains in Dartford Town Centre

On Thursday 5th July six new Kent Workplace Mission chaplains were commissioned in a service held at The Meeting Place, The Orchards Shopping Centre in Dartford High Street.
The Meeting Place is a community space that is available to use for any community event in Dartford. As it is placed in one of the shopping centres in Dartford it was ideal for the commissioning service.

It was well attended by representatives from Dartford churches. We were pleased that the Mayor of Dartford, Cllr David Mote and his Mayoress Ellen and Cllr Ann Allen, vice-chair of Kent County Council were all able to attend and support this new venture. The Mayor said after the event, "it was a pleasure to attend your extremely successful event, which demonstrated true community spirit".
