Bishop of Lynn cycles West Norfolk for Lent

Bishop of Lynn 300The Bishop of Lynn, the Rt Revd Jonathan Meyrick, is to take up cycling this Lent in an attempt to visit most of the 69 parishes in his area and to raise support for the Diocesan Lent Project , “Empowering Women In Papau New Guinea”.
Bishop Jonathan, 59, who came to Norfolk last June, will spend nine days on the road, beginning on Ash Wednesday 22nd February at 8.30 am.    

On his travels across West Norfolk, he will lead an Ash Wednesday service in King’s Lynn, join in a choir practice in Heacham, licence two clergy for their new ministries in Upper Sheringham and Weybourne, take part in a Messy Church event at Badersfield, visit a number of church schools, and lead a Lent course in Overstrand.

Bishop Jonathan (pictured) said: “By cycling through nine deaneries over nine days, I’m hoping to pass through nearly all 69 benefices in my area, and to meet as many people as possible along the way,”

“At the same time, I’m hoping to raise awareness of our Diocesan Lent Project which focusses on our link Diocese of Papua New Guinea. The church there is currently seeking to make a real difference to the quality of life its women experience. Their empowerment, hopes and aspirations offer a real prospect of new hope, new involvement and new life, which is what Lent and Easter are all about.”
