Also in attendance was the Archdeacon of Chelmsford, the Venerable David Lowman, who is also on the school’s governing body, and the Rural Dean, the Rev Dr Ian Jorysz.
Headmaster Ian Davies welcomed the new chaplain, his wife, Sarah, and their three sons, Caolan, Jonty and Dewi to the school and wished them a long and happy time at Brentwood.
Former mayor and Old Brentwood David Tee was joined by the chairman of governors, Colin Finch, and fellow governors Bob McLintock and Michael Bolton.
New student head of school Helen Walls gave the reading.
As well as his chaplaincy duties, Revd Dr McConnaughie will teach chemistry and religious studies.
He will also lead regular chapel assemblies in the senior school and a weekly assembly at the Preparatory School.
