Lynda is loving her curacy in Sneinton counting it such a privilege to talk to people about how much they are loved by Jesus – particularly in the context of setting up a new GP chaplaincy and in conversations with many people who thought that they would not be welcomed in church.  Lynda is serving her title with The Revd Canon Steve Silvester in the Benefice of Sneinton St Stephen with St Matthias and the Benefice Nottingham St Nicholas.
