Church welcomes Hannah
THERE was a special welcome last week for the newest member of All Saints Church in Wokingham.
The Revd Hannah Higginson was inducted as the Associate Priest at a service attended by the Bishop Andrew Proud of Reading, Borough Mayor Cllr John Kaiser and representatives from other churches.
Mrs Higginson will be a full-time member of the team of clergy and lay ministers working alongside the church’s Rector, Canon David Hodgson. She will have particular responsibilities for the new housing areas being built in the parish and for families with children in the parish.
Canon David said: “I’m delighted to welcome Hannah to join our community and ministers’ team here at Wokingham All Saints.
“Hannah brings many gifts following an excellent first appointment in the Parish of Finchampstead and California.
“We welcome too into the local community her husband Matt and daughter Elizabeth.”
Hannah chairs the Wokingham Foodbank and is also Chaplain to South Berkshire District Scouts.
Hannah said: “Thank you for the welcome that you have already extended to myself, Matt and Elizabeth, and we look forward to getting to know you all and working with you to serve God in this place.”
