2019 New Years Honours: Award
The Lay Pastoral Minister at St John's, Anne Abel, was awarded the British Empire Medal by Her Majesty The Queen in the New Year's Birthday Honours. Fr David said he was "thrilled" by Anne's honour. "Anne has worked for many years for three organisations dedicated to St John: St John's Ambulance, the St John's Guild for the Blind and St John's church. At the church she is Pastoral Assistant and served for nearly thirty years as Churchwarden. Her latest role is helping lead our new playgroup. This is a richly deserved honour and we are all so proud of her".
