The Cam Valley churches team will be welcoming a new vicar tomorrow in a ceremony in Great Chesterford.

The Rev Alex Jeewan will be officially licensed and join the Saffron Walden ministry on July 25. The ceremony will take place at 7.30pm in All Saints Church, Great Chesterford.

Rev Jeewan was ordained in 2015 and served his curacy in the Witham and villages team ministry where he has been living with his wife, Caroline, and their two sons.

Before he was ordained, Alex was a primary school teacher for 17 years, mainly in Barking and Dagenham.

In his spare time, Alex enjoys watching films, listening to music, playing his guitar and walking the dog.

Rev Jeewan said: “I am really looking forward to joining the Saffron Walden and villages team and to serve the villages of Great Chesterford, Little Chesterford, Wendens Ambo, Littlebury and Littlebury Green.

“These are beautiful villages and I look forward to us walking together as we find out where god might be leading us in these exciting times.”
