Installation service of our new Rector Belinda Beckhelling

Induction and Installation of our new Rector

Our lovely Church was filled with joy as Reverend Belinda Beckhelling was installed as our new Rector on the evening of Monday 8th April. The Bishop of Rochester led the service and the church resounded with music, praise and thanksgiving as Belinda was welcomed. It was an uplifting and memorable evening to add to the long history of Keston Parish Church.

It was a wonderful occasion. When the singing began I had to check the roof was still there. The volume of ‘Tell Out My Soul’ was immense.
