Ten people returned to Glasgow from Gothenburg on Monday 11th April after a Service of Thanksgiving for nine years of partnership within the Porvoo Communion. We will host a return visit from our Gothenburg friends in November which will bring the partnership to a conclusion.
To mark the occasion a Eucharist was celebrated at Gothenburg Cathedral on Sunday 10th April where Bishop Gregor preached and Bishop Per Eckerdal celebrated.
Bishop Idris Jones and Bishop Cal Axel Aurelius, the two bishops who originally signed the agreement offered reflections on our beginnings and endings.
