Annual visit to Lincoln

Once again the Bishop of Lincoln invites us to the Cathedral for the Chrism Eucharist on the Tuesday in Holy Week, at which the Bishop, priests and deacons of the diocese reaffirm their ordination vows and the Holy Oils used for Baptism, Confirmation and Healing are blessed for use across the diocese.

This year it falls on 31st March, and is at 11:00. All are welcome.

A suitable train leaves Stamford at 08:00 and after a change of trains at Peterborough you would arrive in Lincoln in good time for a walk up to the Cathedral with a coffee stop on the way. After lunch and/or other leisure in Lincoln after the service, the 14:46 train from there to Newark with an additional change at Peterborough will get you home in time for tea before the evening address and compline at All Saints! (There are other return options available, depending upon how you wish to spend the afternoon, and some require just the one change at Peterborough.) Chance to sample the new Virgin Trains East Coast service if you go via Newark, though!
