Monday evening, the 9th September 2019, saw a full church gather to witness the licensing of our new Priest in Charge, Fr Reid Humble, by the Lord Bishop of Chelmsford and his installation by the Archdeacon of Southend. Among the congregation gathered were the Mayor & Mayoress of Southend, Local Councillors and representatives from local schools, our local Police, youth groups, local businesses, and other faith groups. The evening culminated in a reception held in the church hall where the ladies of the church had excelled themselves as usual by producing a buffet for all to enjoy. It was a joyous and uplifting occasion, and we hope it will mark the start of many happy, fulfilling and fruitful years amongst us for Fr Reid and Charlotte.
