Churchgoers bid farewell to the Bishop of Colchester at a special service on Saturday afternoon.

The gathering at St Peter's Church in Coggeshall at 3.30pm, was the official send-off for Bishop Christopher Morgan, who is retiring after 40 years in the church.

66-year-old Bishop Christopher became a priest in 1974 and was ordained as Bishop of Colchester at Westminster Abbey in December 2001. He was responsible for 226 churches.
