Our Archdeacon Matthew becomes our Bishop Matthew
After a long wait because of the covid pandemic, the new Bishop of Stafford, Matthew Parker, was consecrated on 13th April. Matthew had previously served for several years as the area Archdeacon and so many local people know him well. He was consecrated at Lambeth Palace, the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and you can see a video of that here.
At 10.00 a.m. on Sunday 9th May 2021, Bishop Matthew will be leading Holy Communion at St Luke's Tittensor. Numbers at the service remain constrained by social distancing but we aim to stream it live and make a recording available as soon as possible afterwards.
Please join us we celebrate the risen Christ and welcome our new bishop.
