Welcome to the Rev Jonnie Parkin

Tonight saw a fantastic turnout as the Rev Jonnie Parkin was licensed as associate priest to the benefices of Branston with Nocton and Potterhanworth, Metheringham with Dunston and Blankney. The Bishop of Grantham, the Rt Rev Dr Tim Ellis performed the licensing during a service a All Saints Church, Nocton.

Representitives of all the parishes, local school and local authorities attended. Jonnies main role will be to work with children, schools, young adults and families.

It was a fabulous sight to see him welcomed by the community across the board. Hopefully it is a precursor of good times to come. After the service an informal reception was held at Nocton Village Hall.
