After ten years of outstanding service as Chaplain of the ancient church situated in the middle of Ilford known as Ilford Hospital Chapel Canon John Barnes has decided to retire. Father Barnes was for many years the Vicar of St. Mary’s, Great Ilford until retirement and then became became the Chaplain.

The Trustees have appointed me as Chaplain in succession to Father Barnes and my first service will be on Thursday 2nd February Candlemass at 12.35 p.m. Father Banes will be a difficult act to follow but I will do my best.
