CHELMSFORD Cathedral's new dean was installed during a special service on Sunday.

Revd Nicholas Henshall was welcomed to the congregation before going through a ceremony led by Bishop of Chelmsford Stephen Cottrell to celebrate his arrival.

Afterwards he told the congregation to go and spread the word of their faith.

Revd Henshall said: "“The core worshipping life of the Christian community is about meeting God face to face, being transformed by that encounter, and then being sent out to live it.”
