Almost 300 people from Teddington Parish welcomed Reverend David Cloake as the new vicar on Monday 11 September at St Mary with St Alban's Church and afterwards at St Mary's Parish Hall.

The Bishop of Kensington, Dr Emma Ineson, presided over the collation and induction ceremony which can be viewed here.



David moved to Teddington Parish from St Philip and St James in Whitton with his wife Joanna and twin daughters Jessica and Rebekah, who are studying A-levels.

Reverend Cloake said he considers it a "blessing" to move to Teddington and he is looking forward to "serving hard". He would love to meet the congregation at the forthcoming weekly Sunday services held at 8am, 9am and 10am.
