It has been announced today that the Bishop of Southwark's Chaplain, the Revd Mark Steadman, has been appointed as the Archdeacon of Stow and Lindsey in the Diocese of Lincoln. 

Bishop Christopher says, "Mark will be an excellent and insightful Archdeacon and I am confident this appointment will play to his considerable gifts.  I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Mark as my Chaplain over four years, not least for the way in which he has made it both possible and easy for so many people throughout the Diocese to have ready access to me and to speak with me or through him to me.  I know that this has been particularly valued by the clergy of the Diocese.  I commend Mark to your prayers and I will make further contact about the implications for my Office in due course".

It is not yet known when Mark will take up his new role but it will probably be in the autumn. 

We all wish Mark well in his new role and responsibilities.

Ends.
