The 60th Anniversary of Rev Howard Skinner’s Ordination

On Sunday 14th July 2013 we had a special service at St John's to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Howard Skinner's Ordination. The service was led by Rev Helen Letley and included a sermon by Rev Harvey Richardson and prayers by Jan Sutch Pickard from the Iona community.


The following week Howard and Beryl celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They have one son and three daughters


After being ordained in Birmingham Howard’s ministry started with 3 years in Coventry, followed by 5 in Chislehurst, 7 in Lewisham, 7 in Whitstable, 8 in Gillingham, 8 in Sheppey and 22 in Whitstable.


The service was followed by a lovely meal with a special anniversary cake made by Angela.
