The January/February 2018 issue of Crosslincs

03 January 2018


Copies of the January/February 2018 issue of Crosslincs, our diocesan magazine, will soon be available in churches around the diocese.

The forthcoming launch service for Learning Communities (11am on Saturday, 3rd February 2018 in Lincoln Cathedral) provides the cover feature, as we look forward to gathering as a diocesan family to celebrate the contexts for mission that are to be found in greater Lincolnshire.

The new issue also includes an update from the diocesan Children & Youth Team, with some advance news of a planned major event for young people, plus early notice of Thy Kingdom Come 2018.


The Revd Mary Vickers and the Revd Peter Vickers take a look back at a great opportunity to serve as chaplains at the 2017 Invictus Games in Canada (pictured above), and we have updates on lay ministry and fresh expressions.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we hear of a new publishing venture in Horncastle that seeks to share good news in the local community; a gathering of the Lincoln Area of the Third Order of the Society of St Francis; and also something of the work of Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency.


The diocesan Church Buildings Team shares details of some helpful resources and looks ahead to a day conference to be held in April (as outlined here), the regular Nature and Nurture column continues to consider birds in our churchyards, plus there is the popular crossword, news items from groups and parishes and details of forthcoming events.

In addition to the printed copies of the magazine, a PDF version of the issue is available here, and an Issuu-hosted ‘page-turning’ version is available here.

The expanded, and now monthly, diocesan prayer diary is available here.

We hope that you enjoy the January/February 2018 issue of Crosslincs.

Please do get in touch with the Revd Adrian Smith in the Communications Office if you have a story that we might share in a forthcoming issue. We would be very pleased to hear from you.
