News and events Stories Introducing the January/February 2020 issue of Crosslincs Copies of the January/February 2020 issue of Crosslincs, our diocesan magazine, will soon be available in churches around the diocese. The Bishop of Lincoln's Social Justice Fund provides the lead story for the new issue, as we hear more about the work of the Riverside Access and Training Centre in Gainsborough. Launched in partnership with the Lincolnshire Community Foundation in 2015, the Bishop of Lincoln's Social Justice Fund seeks to support local organisations involved in social justice and to help to transform lives throughout greater Lincolnshire. Through our two-page story, we hear of how the funding is being put to work in this setting and the local impact. The new issue also has something of an international flavour, as we hear of a well-established link between a Lincoln church and Northern Uganda (St Stephen's Church at Keyo Hill is pictured above), there are the reflections of an ordinand who spent time at the World Council of Churches in Geneva (main image), and South Africa provides the setting for some thoughts on mission opportunities that are presented to us through sport. Closer to home, we look at how an area of land next to All Saints Church in Saxby has been transformed for the benefit of the wider community, and a member of our clergy talks us through her work to raise awareness of the impact of the loss of a pet. In addition, we also have several news items, notices, training dates and our popular prize crossword. We hope that you enjoy the January/February 2020 issue of Crosslincs. As well as the printed copies of the magazine, a PDF version of the issue may be found here, and an Issuu-hosted ‘page-turning’ version is available here. The monthly diocesan prayer diary is available here. Please do get in touch with 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. Crosslincs is available as a talking newspaper – please contact us for further details.
