The Revd Joseph Snelling has been been inducted as the Rector of the Woodhall Spa Group of Churches.

A service was held at St Margaret's Church in Langton with the Bishop of Grimsby and the Archdeacon of Lincoln on Friday, 17th July 2020, and since the service it has been possible to join Joseph for the livestreaming of Morning Prayer on the group's Facebook page.

Speaking at the time of his appointment, Joseph, who formerly served at St Swithin's in Lincoln, told the group's new-look website: 'We are really excited to be moving to Woodhall Spa as a family and can't wait to be able to get to know you all. I am passionate about seeing communities develop in prayer, in mission and in service and I really look forward to working together with you to grow and develop the life and mission of the parishes. I am praying for you and am excited to be able to pray with you before too long. We would love your prayer as we move and settle in, hopefully we can meet over a socially distanced cuppa in the garden soon!'
