In the light of the current situation regarding the coronavirus, production on the next issue of our diocesan magazine, Crosslincs, has been paused for the time being.

Our next issue was due to have been the May/June 2020 edition, with a copy deadline of 1st April 2020, but it would be difficult to prepare and distribute the magazine in the normal way in the current circumstances.

As a result of this situation, we will be looking to offer as much content as possible through our website and social media. Although many people prefer the printed form, we hope that this online offering will help us to maintain our efforts to communicate and share with one another.

With this in mind, we would be delighted to hear of news and information from the people and parishes of our diocese. As previously published (please see here), we are aware of all sorts of initiatives and new forms of worship and acts of service that are taking place at the moment, and we would pleased to hear more. (Please contact us via email in the first instance. We welcome photos, logos, etc subject to the usual checks prior to publication.)

In the meantime, we know that our regular prize crossword is very popular and might be missed in this gap between our print editions. Therefore, and just for fun, please find below the crossword that was due to be featured in our May/June 2020 issue. The grid and clues are published below in various formats. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept completed entries on this occasion – a completed grid with the answers will be published on this website in due course.

As ever, we are grateful to Ariq for our crosswords, and we offer all of our readers our thoughts, prayers and best wishes at this time.

Crossword in Word (here) and PDF (here) formats.
