A new Assistant Chaplain has arrived on the islands.

The Reverend Penny Prince will be based in the Parsonage on Tresco and will also spend some time living on St. Martins.

Commenting on her arrival, Canon Paul Miller said he’s pleased to have a colleague to work with and to share ministry on the islands.

It will be a real help, especially in the winter months, said Paul, when boating options are limited.

And he feels Penny’s appointment will ensure the church can offer services and pastoral care across all five islands more effectively.

There’ll be a special service to welcome Penny at St. Nicholas Church on Tresco this Sunday, starting at 11am.

It will be followed by a lunch in the New Inn and a boat has been arranged to leave the Quay on St Mary’s at 10am.

Bookings for the lunch should be made through Canon Miller on 423911.
