All of these new ‘revs’ were give their official roles by the Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, during the service on June 28.
They will spread out across churches in Sussex and join nearly 1,000 new ministers being ordained into the Church of England this year. Most of the deacons will become priests next year although some will continue as ‘distinctive deacons’.
