CANCELLED - Admission of Churchwardens 2020 (13th of May) alternative date/s to be advised

Date: 13th May 2020

Time: 16:00 - 20:00

The Office of Churchwarden is an annual office and it is a legal requirement for all churchwardens to be sworn in every year by the Diocesan Registrar or Archdeacon.

This year (2020) Bishop Stephen has suspended the Archdeacons’ Right of Presentation.  This means there will be no individual visitation services, but rather you are warmly invited to Ely Cathedral to attend the celebration event, Celebrating a Confident People of God with the Admission of Churchwardens.

Following our pilgrim’s trail, and gathering resources as you go, your journey will bring you into contact with diocesan representatives who will share how they can support you in your work, nurturing a confident people of God.  Find out how some parishes have discovered surprising ways to Engage with their communities.  Join in with different experiences of prayer in the prayer chapels and explore ways to Grow and Deepen your own faith.

You are welcome to start your journey at 4pm, join in Evensong at 5.30pm if you wish to do so. The formal service of Admission of Churchwardens will take place at 7pm.  Refreshments will be served until 6.30pm.

*A formal letter of invitation will be circulated from the Bishop’s Office in due course.
