Present from the reverend (4)
I believe the answer is:
'present' is the definition.
(both can mean in attendance)
'from the reverend' is the wordplay.
'from' indicates a hidden word.
'HERE' is hidden within 'the reverend'.
(Other definitions for here that I've seen before include "Present; I say!" , "Hither" , ""___ be dragons" (old map inscription?)" , "In this place - present" , "On this spot" .)
