Many congratulations to Revd. Mark Wroe, who will shortly take up the appointment of Archdeacon of Northumberland. As Archdeacon, Mark will join the Board of Trustees of Shepherds Dene and we look forward very much to welcoming him.
We are very pleased to announce that the trustees have approved a project to upgrade and refurbish the lift at Shepherds Dene. The refurbishment should be carried out before Easter and will provide guests and staff with a more reliable and pleasurable journey between floors! Thanks to the All Churches Trust and the Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Church of England Institute Trust for their kind donations towards the refurbishment project.
Warden, Jane Easterby, will complete her two years of ministerial training in June this year and will be ordained at St. Nicholas’ Cathedral, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne at 11am on Saturday 29th June. Jane will continue as full-time Warden of Shepherds Dene and will serve a curacy in a Parish in the Newcastle Diocese on a part-time basis. Jane would like to thank everyone for their prayerful and practical support over the last few years and would be very happy to see you at the ordination service.
