The Venerable Martin Gray will be serving the diocese as Archdeacon of Stow and Lindsey on an interim basis, until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Bishop Christopher said, “I am delighted that Martin has agreed to join our team, and I am extremely grateful to Martin for agreeing to step into this demanding role, and I know you will join me in welcoming him to the Archdeaconry of Stow and Lindsey.”

Martin comes to us with significant experience, having previously been Archdeacon of Lynn, and will be supported in his ministry here by the Reverends Moira Astin,  Andrew Dodd and Alan Hayday.

Archdeacon Martin said, “It is a real pleasure to be here in what is a new part of the world for me, which I am looking forward to discovering.” He added that he is, “Looking forward to being able to offer help and support wherever I can over my interim period here.”
