News and events Stories Rural Ministry: one-day events coming soon Two one-day events for people involved in rural ministry in our diocese are to be held later this year. The first event will be held at the Trinity Centre in Louth on Tuesday, 22nd May 2018, with the second event to be held at St John the Baptist Church in Spalding on Wednesday, 13th June 2018. The days are intended primarily for people in ministry (clergy, readers and authorised lay ministers), but they are also open to church officers. A keynote address will be offered at each event by Dr Jill Hopkinson, National Rural Officer for the Church of England, and there will be workshops during the day on a range of topics relating to rural ministry. There is no charge for either event, and attendees are invited to bring a packed lunch with them (hot drinks will be provided). To book a free place, please contact the Ministry Team by email or by calling 01522 50 40 22.
