LRSN welcomes the new Bishop of Grantham
We are delighted that HM The Queen has approved the nomination of the Revd Dr Nicholas Alan Chamberlain as the next Bishop of Grantham.
Nicholas (51) has been Vicar of the parish of St George and St Hilda, Jesmond, in the Diocese of Newcastle, for nine years.
As 12th suffragan Bishop of Grantham, Nicholas will have pastoral oversight of the archdeaconry of Boston, but will also have a diocese-wide role of developing and encouraging ordained and lay ministry.
The Bishop of Lincoln, the Rt Revd Christopher Lowson, said: "I am gratified that the Diocese of Lincoln has attracted a priest of the calibre of Nicholas Chamberlain to be Bishop of Grantham. He brings fabulous gifts, a truly pastoral heart, a profound faith, and indefatigable dedication to the mission and purpose of the church."
We look forward to meeting and working with the new Bishop and congratulate him on his new role.
