9:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
A packed congregation celebrated as a priest formally took charge of 15 village churches.
More than 150 people attended St Peter and St Paul Church, in The Street, Foxearth, last Wednesday for the induction of the Revd Margaret King as team rector of the North Hinckford benefice.
Mrs King, who had been responsible for six parishes within the benefice, will now lead all 14 parishes in the area, including Alphamstone, Wickham St Paul, Belchamp St Paul and Great Henny.
Congregation member Rosemary Ingram, who helped co-ordinate the service, said: “It went extremely well.
“The church was full and looked absolutely resplendent with fantastic flowers.
“It was a very friendly service and there was lots of love and affection for Margaret King.”
