Thank You

On Sunday 05/08/2018 St John's Camberwell said farewell to our long-term Locum Vicar, Father Ken Hewlett, who has been with us since October 2017.

We owe an immense debt of gratitude to Father Ken for his exemplary ministry over the last 10 months. Ken, we are enormously grateful that you agreed to come to us during this troubled time for our parish, and thank you for your superb preaching, your liturgical leadership, your wise counsel, generous pastoral care and friendship. It has been wonderful to have Bev worshipping with us as well. We wish you both well, and hope that our paths may cross again in the future.
