This Sunday the 24th May, Revd. Capt. Richard Waller was commissioned as the new Mothers’ Union Chaplain at a Diocesan Mother’s Union Festival Service held on the Diocese of Kilmore, Elpin and Ardagh Youtube channel.
During the service, Revd. Richard preached on Hebrews 6 vs 19 – We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. In his address, he reflected that it was this hope that inspired Mary Sumner, the founder of the Mothers’ Union, who was passionate about transforming the home lives of families. He commended the continued work of the Mothers’ Union in seeking to give hope, confidence and support to others.
Revd. Richard is originally from Pudsey near Leeds, Yorkshire but came to this island as a Church Army evangelist on the outreach team at Willowfield church in Belfast. He began training in ordained ministry in 2015 and was appointed as Bishop’s Curate to the Kildallon group of parishes in September 2017.
