Congratulations to Rev Barry Carter OBE!

A quick post to say happy new year and congratulations to Rev Barry Carter, from St Andrews Chuch, Brockley Road, who has been awarded an OBE in the New Year's honours list for services to the community in Brockley.

Although Barry theoretically retired a couple of months back, after 30 years at St Andrew's, he is still leading services until his successor is in position and with his wife Christine will still, I'm sure, be playing at active role in the church after that.

St Andrew's Centre is very much at the heart of the local community, with loads of events held there every week, from pensioner lunch clubs to mother and baby groups, and I suspect a sizeable chunk of its continued success is down to Barry's hard work over the years.

(hat tip to Nick from Brockley Central who beat me to it with this one)
