Congratulations to our new Lincoln Reader colleagues
Licensed by Bishop Christopher, in Lincoln Cathedral on the 27th October 2018

During the Service, The Bishop of Grantham preached the sermon and encouraged a shared identity in our task of mission and ministry - whether Clergy or Lay. Bishop Nicholas quoted writer Alan Bennett and suggested that we should be ‘Keeping On Keeping On’.
