IT was with great dismay that I read an article about our local vicar, Simon Tibbs.
He has recently been serving at St. Mary''s church in Waterloo and it needs to be known that the work he has done here and for the local community is a testament to his commitment.
He has been doing a great job in encouraging more people to attend church for a whole variety of family oriented activities and the congregation has seen an upsurge in the number of younger attendees.
Last Sunday, he held a pet blessing after a dog walk through Chaffers playing fields and it was certainly a sight to behold when sitting in the pews instead of the usual congregation were dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises, hamsters and even a snake! It was lovely to see so many families who treated it as a fun day out.
Mr. Tibbs'' ideas, creativity and warm nature have helped to refresh the slightly antiquated image of going to church on a Sunday (or any other day for that matter) and has modernised it and placed the family at the core of his work.
