Ascension Day video message from Revd Dr Andrew Emerton

As you will be aware, on this Ascension Day many people would have been gathering in York Minster for the Consecration of the Revd Dr. Andrew Emerton as the next Bishop of Sherwood. 

Whilst we are understandably sad that this has not been possible due to the current restrictions necessitated through Coronavirus, Andy will still be licensed as Bishop of Sherwood Designate from 1st July 2020 and will gradually start to be involved in the life of the diocese, starting fully in September.

We look forward to confirming details for Andy’s subsequent Consecration in the early autumn. Although not in York today, Andy has recorded a special message for the diocese which you may view by clicking here.
