Nearly 300 people attended a service and reception to mark the installation of Thaxted’s new Priest-in-charge last week.

Under the watchful eye of Bishop of Colchester the Ven Roger Morris, Thaxted Parish Church saw the creation of a Team Ministry last Tuesday, October 13.

New priest-in-charge Father Philip Tarris was joined by Fatherr Chris Brown, Fatherr Graham Ridgwell and Reader Adrian Wright.

Attended by Archbishop of Stansted the Ven Robin King and Thaxted’s churchwardens Professor Colin Harrison and Janet Walker, the service also included music.

Entertainment was provided by Christopher Bayston and the Thaxted choir and The Sampford Singers.
