Archdeacon to go to Lincoln
The Venerable Christine Wilson leaving after six years in county
The Venerable Christine Wilson, Archdeacon of Chesterfield, has been appointed Dean of Lincoln.
She has been in Derbyshire since 2010, where she has developed and delivered strategies for mission, ministry, recruitment, finance and property, and led on a significant project in developing and reshaping the deaneries as a key strategic structure in the mission of the diocese.“I was thrilled, and a little daunted, to be offered the post of Dean of Lincoln,” she said. “Recently I have begun to build associations with Lincoln, and the fabulous opportunity to lead a world-class cathedral in inspiring worship, ministry and mission is one that I will, with the help of God, and of the whole community, be delighted to undertake.”
Bishop Alastair said, “Christine has made an outstanding contribution to the leadership of our Diocese. We shall miss her wisdom, energy and colleagueship. She will bring an impressive range of skills to this new opportunity.”
She will be installed at Lincoln Cathedral on 22nd October at 5pm.
