It's been announced today that Archdeacon of York Sarah Bullock will be leaving soon to be the next Bishop of Shrewsbury in the Diocese of Lichfield.

Due to the short timescale before her consecration at St Paul's Cathedral, London, on the 3rd July, there is no opportunity for a single large-scale farewell service in the Diocese of York.

However, since this is the season of Archdeacons' Services for Admission of Churchwardens, Sarah would be delighted to see friends old and new at whichever of the services (below) is most convenient.

A 'keepsake book' will be available at all the services for you to write your message to Sarah.
