Our new Rector, the Rev’d Anna Moore, was inducted and licensed by the Bishop of Croydon, Jonathan Clark, on the 10th April at St Michael’s Betchworth as Rector of the United Benefice of Betchworth and Buckland. It was a lovely occasion with a full church including members of Anna’s family, friends from St Marks Reigate where she was the curate, many members of both congregation and local civic dignitaries including Nigel Husband chairman of Buckland Council who formally welcomed her on behalf of the Parish Council. She lives in the Rectory Betchworth, and we are looking forward to a new page in the church’s life in Buckland and integration with the village.
