The event was well attended - higher numbers than a similar reception 3 years go. On hand to welcome about 50 guests were both bishops and their staff, members of the diocesan staff and three of our own General Synod Reps, Canons Ann Turner, Debbie Flach and Ian Hutchinson-Cervantes, pictured above.
People came with a wide range of questions, about jobs in the diocese, about our locations, even about our views on women clergy! Slowly but surely we are reclaiming our place on the Church of England map.
