Dear Members and Friends of St Andrew’s,
It’s with much pleasure and great joy that we are writing to let you know that Bob has been appointed a Canon of St Mary’s Cathedral Chapter, Edinburgh by Bishop John with immediate effect. Therefore, Prebendary Bob King now becomes Reverend Canon Bob King.
We are delighted that Bob’s wisdom and breadth of experience in parish ministry has been recognised in this way. The contribution he has made here in Kelso and also further afield within our community and in the diocese is well worthy of this honour. We know that Bob, with his many gifts, has much to offer in terms of his knowledge of the most effective ways of cultivating and growing life within the church. In addition, he is someone with vision for the future. And so, we’re sure you will join with us in offering Bob our warmest congratulations.
In these days of lockdown good news like this lifts our spirits, and we look forward to the day when we can, as the congregation of St Andrew’s, make the trip to Edinburgh for Bob’s Installation as Canon, followed by a very happy celebration to mark the occasion.
We are very proud of him and so pleased to share this news with you all.
With our love and prayers,
Grace Redpath, Associate Priest
Keith Redpath, Rector’s Warden
Sandie Goddard, People’s Warden
