Bishop pays a visit to deanery

Have your say

The Bishop of Doncaster, Peter Burrows, will embark upon a tour of the Ecclesall Deanery tomorrow (Tuesday 9 April) viewing various aspects of parish life and ministry.

In the Anglican Church, the definition of a deanery is a group of parishes that form a district within an archdeaconry. The Diocese of Sheffield is split into two archdeaconries Doncaster and Sheffield & Rotherham. Each archdeaconry contains six deaneries.

During the day Bishop Burrows will visit St Mary’s Bramall Lane (12pm) where he will lead a service as well as looking at some of the projects the church is involved with.

In the afternoon he is due to visit Sheffield United Football Club and also Christ Church, Dore where he will meet with churchwardens and explore the work of the church.

Although known as the Bishop of Doncaster, Bishop Burrows is suffragan bishop to the whole Diocese of Sheffield and his work includes engagement with communities across South Yorkshire.
