Conversational Evensong With Dean Of St Paul's
The Very Rev'd Dr David Ison will speak at St Nicholas Church
A Conversational Evensong will be held at St. Nicholas, Chiswick, 23rd March at 6.00 pm. when the special guest will be The Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Very Rev’d Dr David Ison.
He will share some of the challenges of ministering in London, the Christian journey that brought him to become Dean of St. Paul’s and what legacy the Occupy Movement has left not just to St. Paul’s Cathedral but to all who campaign for a fairer world.
It will be an evening of relaxed conversation and worship and music and a chance to find out a little more about Dr Ison and what inspires and motivates him. Refreshments will be served after the service.
Dr Ison was brought up in Brentwood, Essex and went to university in Leicester and theological college in Nottingham. He was ordained, aged 24, as a curate in Deptford, south-east London where he was engaged in inner-city ministry.
After three years as a tutor at the Church Army training college in Blackheath, he became vicar of Potter's Green in Coventry. In 2005 he became Dean of Bradford with the task of rebuilding the cathedral's ministry and mission. He became Dean of St Paul's in May 2012.
