News and events Stories Introducing the July/August 2018 issue of Crosslincs Copies of the July/August 2018 issue of Crosslincs, our diocesan magazine, will soon be available in churches around the diocese.* Bishop Christopher’s visit to the Diocese of Polynesia provides the cover story for the new issue, as The Most Revd Dr Winston Halapua (Bishop of Polynesia and Primate and Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia) offers his reflections on the visit, the developing relationship between our dioceses and our shared concerns over the impact of climate change. The new issue also contains news of the appointment of the Revd David Dadswell as Diocesan Secretary, details of recent and forthcoming church festivals, the story of a link between a stole and the Red Arrows, and an invitation to consider becoming a Bishop’s Visitor in our schools. Elsewhere we hear how a walking group has prompted conversations about faith, there are our regular features on Fresh Expressions, children and youth work and caring for our environment, and we celebrate the third birthday of the popular Louth Men’s Shed. *Thank you to those readers who have responded to the letter sent to them with their copy/copies of the March/April issue, and who have indicated that they wish to continue to receive the magazine.
