On a mission

The Bishop of Sherwood, the Rt Revd Tony Porter, has taken a team from Southwell & Nottingham to Newcastle Diocese to take part in the Pathways Mission.

He is among 26 Bishops taking part in more than 300 events organised by parishes and deaneries to strengthen their relationships with local communities, and to reach out with the Good News of Jesus.

The weekend began with a Commissioning event on Holy Island led by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu.
