Order of service for the induction to the pastorate of the Reverend Kenneth Slack at the City Temple on October 2nd, 1967. The Induction Prayer to the service was led by Minister Emeritus Dr Leslie D. Weatherhead CBE, minister at the City Temple between 1936 and 1960. This is his personal order of service copy, with handwritten prayers and notes.

The Reverend Dr. Leslie D(ixon) Weatherhead, CBE, (1893-1976) was a Methodist preacher of worldwide renown. He was known for his impressive appearance, clarity of thought and melodious voice. Some of his beliefs caused controversy among Methodists and non-Methodists alike, especially his interpretation of the Holy Trinity and the parentage of Jesus.
