On Sunday 9th December, two bishops joined the congregations of St Mary's and St Paul's, Sculcoates, Hull, for the institution of Fr Phil Lamb as Vicar of both parishes.

Fr Phil moved to Sculcoates in 2017 from Hornsea, Atwick and Skipsea, initially as Priest-in-Charge. The legal 'Plurality' that enables him to become 33rd Vicar of Sculcoates and the first to hold that role in the two churches is an important moment in the history of both.

Bishop of Beverley the Rt Revd Glyn Webster and Bishop of Hull the Rt Revd Alison White were both present for the service and celebration afterwards.
