Chester: Getting to know you

04 January 2013

NOT turkey and Christmas pudding, but lasagne, followed by pavlova, was the menu for the annual Christmastide lunch in Chester diocese for some of the ordinands sponsored by the diocese.

They, with their spouses, were invited to lunch at Bishop's House by the Bishop of Chester, Dr Peter Forster; the Bishop of Stockport, the Rt Revd Robert Atwell; and the Bishop of Birkenhead, the Rt Revd Keith Sinclair. "We all had a relaxed lunch, with lots of opportunities to chat and mingle," Dr Forster said. "It is so encouraging to see, year after year, people of such high quality coming forward for training to the ordained ministry."
