On the second Sunday of Lent our Chaplain led worship in Sofia, Bulgaria. In his absence, we received a visit from a former Chaplain, Revd Steve Hughes, who presided at the Eucharist. It was a lovely morning, with sunshine streaming through the windows of the church and helping us to forget, at least for an hour, that outside the temperature was below zero and there was snow on the ground!
We were honoured to have as visitors two representatives of the Church Missionary Society Ireland, Robbie Symes and James Price. It was particularly appropriate that they came on this Sunday because we receive from them an annual grant that helps us to cover the cost of ensuring the presence of the Church of the Resurrection in Bulgaria.
