Her Majesty The Queen has approved the nomination of The Venerable Dr Jane Steen, currently Archdeacon of Southwark, to be the next Bishop of Lynn.
Archdeacon Jane has a deep pastoral care for the people and communities that she serves currently in Southwark and has a rich experience of mission in the Church of England, including supporting church communities to flourish. She will bring these aspects, together with her great sense of joy and fun, to the role of Bishop of Lynn.

Archdeacon Jane will be consecrated a bishop in Norwich Cathedral on the Feast Day of St Etheldreda, 23rd June 2021.

Please pray for Jane and her husband, Pip, as they prepare to join us. May we be a blessing to them, as they will be a blessing to us.

CHURCH HISTORY

OUR RECTORS AT GRIMSTON 

A NEW HISTORY OF GRIMSTON'S RECTORS FROM 1242 - 1975.

Steph Hall's new history can be read here. on St Botolph's History pages.

 

Our Churches stretch back hundreds of years and so, of course, does the list of clergymen who have served here.

Stephanie Hall has wonderfully researched the histories of these priests from the middle ages in 1242 when Walter de Thorp served here and  right up to 1975 when it was the Revd. Esdaile Lennox Barnes.
