The Deanery of Stamford

Uniting in Christ to Serve Christ and to Proclaim Christ

Stamford is Deanery 13 of the Diocese of Lincoln and consists of five parishes in the town of Stamford and seven village parishes to the east of the town. We work alongside our brothers and sisters of the other Christian denominations in the town to proclaim the good news of God's love as revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ both in the words we say and the work we do.

Two new priests, one new deacon

In the summer the Bishop of Lincoln ordained the Revd Lis Ward and the Revd Nikki Mann as priests to continue to serve at St George's and All Saints' resepctively, and the Revd Aran Beesley was ordained deacon to serve at All Saints'. With no vacant incumbencies in the deanery and four stipendiary assistant curates we have as many clergy as we're ever likely to have, so it is to be hoped that the mission and ministry of the Church in this corner of Lincolnshire with forge forward with renewed vigour, but don't leave it all to the clergy: all are called to be disciples and God has a history of using ordinary people to do extraordinary things!

Warm welcome to another priest in the deanery

On Sunday evening 26th April at Braceborough the Ven Justine Allain Chapman, Archdeacon of Boston, licenced on the Bishop's behalf the Revd Mark Thomson as Assistant Curate in the Uffington Group with special responsibility for the parishes of Barhom, Braceborough, Wilsthorpe, Greatford and West Deeping. Mark has been serving as Assistant Curate in Market Deeping and is now helping the Revd Carolyn Kennedy in the Uffington Group. We look forward enormously to his ministry among us.

Mark will continue to live in the house at Deeping St James which he has occupied since his ordination.

More Lay Ministers Authorized

On Sunday evening 8th March, appropriately the feast day of Edward King, Bishop of Lincoln 1885-1910, at a choral evensong at Stamford All Saints, our Rural Dean authorized on the Bishop's behalf another five Lay Ministers to do pastoral work and lead worship in the parishes of the deanery. All have completed the Parish Foundation Course and at least one ministry training module. Two of the present candidates have since studied one further module and will receive further authority in due course.

Together with our increased number of stipendiary clergy we are now able to offer across the deanery much more pastoral care and considerably more worship opportunity.
