Over 150 people were present at St Peter’s church in Grays for the visit of the Bishop of Chelmsford The Rt. Rev Stephen Cottrell.
Visitors from the various Anglican churches of the borough came to listen to the recently inaugurated Bishop.
Rev Darren Barlow said: “Everyone that I’ve spoken to said that they thought that it was a wonderful evening and were very impressed with the new Bishop. In his address, he spoke about being born and growing up in south Essex and looking forward to his new role”.
