A Special Day

Wednesday 9th March marked an important occasion in the life of St Peter’s, as we were pleased to witness the collation of our new vicar, the Revd Keith Magee.

Bishop Christopher led the service and installed Keith.

During the service Keith was bestowed with the privileges and duties of the pastorate through the symbols of the church door, the bell, the bible, the eucharistic vessels and the font.

Keith comes not only as our vicar, but also as an important member of the wider community – both church and society. So he was duly welcomed by representatives from various groups.

The two churchwardens were breathing a sigh of relief at Keith’s coming, having successfully steered the church in the interegnum. They were only too pleased to welcome him.

It was a very moving service and well-attended. While Knighton regreted losing Keith, St Peter’s is rejoicing at his coming. The event could not be complete with the usual refreshments. It was good to welcome both church and non-church friends to celebrate this occasion with us.
