Meet the rest of our new Deacons for 2020

On Saturday 26th September, 14 new deacons will be ordained by Bishop Nicholas in 2 groups of 7 in our Cathedral during services at 9.00am and 11.00am.

They include trained scientists, a plumber, and several former nurses and carers.

Their hobbies include skiing, bushcraft, ballet, and slacklining (tightrope walking on a length of webbing).

Lockdown and government restrictions meant these ordinations were delayed from early summer and so the curates were licensed by Zoom as lay workers so they could serve in their parishes and move into their new homes.

Last week, we met 6 of them, and we meet the rest this week.
