RNLI Berwick-upon-Tweed Chaplain leaves for pastures new
Berwick RNLI had their last Sea Sunday service on 29 July with the Reverend Matthew Knox.
The Reverend Matthew Knox has been Berwick's RNLI Chaplain for the past seven and a half years.
He has been there for the lifeboat family, marrying, baptising and sadly also for when the station has lost someone.
He's blessed the charity's lifeboats and prayed over volunteers, for the safe return of the crew, when saving lives at sea.
As he moves to pastures new - the station wishes him and his family 'all the very best'.
