It was a bright sunny evening on Saturday, the 20thApril 2013 where the church of St. John the Baptist, Collingham was full of parishioners from the East Trent Group of Parishes. They were there to welcome and witness the Induction and Installation of their new Rector, the Rev. David Yabbacome.

He now resides in Farndon, where he is the Priest-in-Charge, along with the parishes of Thorpe, Hawton and Cotham.
Among the priests, as guests, were retired Canons Dendle French, John Smith and the Rev. Michael Briggs. All three priests being very supportive to the East Trent Group of Parishes, covering the vacancy of David Milner who left in January 2011; Revs. Mark Roberts, Collingham’s Methodist Minister; David Anderton from All Saints’ Church, Coddington; Canon David Osbourne, Area Dean of Christianity Deanery in Lincoln; Rev. Steve Holt, Curate at Grimsby Minster; Rev. Lucy Cleland, the Bishop's Chaplain and Amanda Redgate, the Diocesan Registrar, who presented the 'Licence to Officiate' to Rev. David Yabbacome.
During the service greetings were given to the new Parish Priest and his wife Esther by representatives of the Deanery, the parishes and local communities. The service ended with a blessing by the Bishop and the ‘Sending Out’ at the church door.

The final stage in the appointment of a clergyman to a benefice, following presentation and institution, or collation. It was at this point that the clergyman took possession of the temporalities of the benefice. After institution the ordinary (usually the bishop) would issue a mandate to the archdeacon or other empowered person to carry out the induction, which involved laying the hands of the clergyman being appointed on the doors of the church and the tolling of a bell. Induction did not normally take place on the same day as institution. In the Clergy of the Church of England Database, this event is not normally recorded, and will usually only be found in instances where records of institutions are deficient. Where inductions are recorded, the evidence for the event may be derived either from a record of the induction itself or from the issuing of an induction mandate.
The term describing the event by which a canon or prebendary, or other cathedral dignitary such as an archdeacon, was given possession of his office by being placed in his stall. It was also used of the placing of a diocesan bishop on his throne
