NEW BISHOP of  KING'S LYNN

THE VENERABLE DR JANE STEEN

Jane introduces herself with a short video here

 

Her Majesty The Queen has approved the nomination of The Venerable Dr Jane Steen, currently Archdeacon of Southwark, to be the next Bishop of Lynn.
Archdeacon Jane has a deep pastoral care for the people and communities that she serves currently in Southwark and has a rich experience of mission in the Church of England, including supporting church communities to flourish. She will bring these aspects, together with her great sense of joy and fun, to the role of Bishop of Lynn.

Archdeacon Jane will be consecrated a bishop in Norwich Cathedral on the Feast Day of St Etheldreda, 23rd June 2021.

Bishop Jane is being welcomed to King's Lynn with a service at the Minster.

Jane Steen, previously Archdeacon of Southwark, will be consecrated and installed as Bishop of Lynn at Norwich Cathedral on Wednesday 23rd of June by the Bishop of London.   Locally, we are welcoming Bishop Jane to Lynn Deanery at a service of welcome on Tuesday 13th July 6.30pm at King’s Lynn Minster.  Please put this date in your diary – all are welcome to this service.  We can accommodate just over 100 people at the Minster under current restrictions, so we are hoping that a really good representation of people from across the deanery will attend.   We will need to know who is coming however, so that we don’t exceed the safe limit in the church.
Further details of how to register an interest in attending will follow,
Please pray for Jane and her husband, Pip, as they prepare to join us. May we be a blessing to them, as they will be a blessing to us.

CHURCH HISTORY

OUR RECTORS AT GRIMSTON 

A NEW HISTORY OF GRIMSTON'S RECTORS FROM 1242 - 1975.

Steph Hall's new history can be read here. on St Botolph's History pages.

 

Our Churches stretch back hundreds of years and so, of course, does the list of clergymen who have served here.

Stephanie Hall has wonderfully researched the histories of these priests from the middle ages in 1242 when Walter de Thorp served here and  right up to 1975 when it was the Revd. Esdaile Lennox Barnes.
