New vicar welcomed to St Augustine, Kilburn
The Revd Colin Amos has been instituted by the Bishop of London as the ninth vicar of St Augustine, Kilburn. Local dignitaries including the Mayor of Camden, Abdul Quadir, and Cllr Jan Prendergast, deputising for the Lord Mayor of Westminster, joined over 450 friends, parishioners and clergy to welcome Fr Amos to his new role at St Augustine.
Fr Amos previously served as vicar in Theodore, Port Talbot, for sixteen years and over a hundred members of his former parish travelled to Kilburn to be part of the service. Also joining the congregation at St Augustine were leading members of the Society of the Holy Cross, the international Anglo-Catholic society, of which Fr Amos is a former Master of the Province of Wales.
St Augustine’s, widely known as the ‘Cathedral of North London’ is a Grade I listed building and a fine example of Victorian Gothic Revival architecture. The Parish has its roots in the roots in the ‘Oxford’ or ‘Tractarian’ Anglo-Catholic movement.
The Revd Colin Amos, Vicar of St Augustine’s, Kilburn, said:
"I am honoured to take up the position of ninth vicar of St Augustine, Kilburn and hope to follow the great pattern set by my predecessors and take the parish further in Ministry."
