Rev'd Ella Harris has been ordained as a priest at Saffron Walden and Villages Team Ministry.

Ella, who is the third generation of minister in her family, was ordained priest at St Peter ad Vincula, Coggleshall by the Bishop of Colchester Rt Rev'd Roger Morris on Saturday, September 30.

Before the service, Ella, who lives in Saffron Walden with her husband Toby, said she was "overwhelmed" by the support shown from members of the ministry's churches.


On her original appointment as curate, the team rector and area dean Rev'd Jeremy Trew explained that Ella has an interest in rural ministry, so would focus her work on the Cam Village Churches, including Great Chesterford, Littlebury, Littlebury Green, Wendens Ambo and St Mary's Church, Saffron Walden.
