Venue: Great Yarmouth Minster, Church Plain, Great Yarmouth NR30 1NE


Five special services will take place this November across the Diocese to welcome the new Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham Usher.Speaking about the start of his ministry, Bishop Graham said:

“I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible, and getting to know you and your wonderful communities, as together we continue to seek to live out Jesus Christ’s call to love God and our neighbours”


This is the second of five special services that will take place this November across the Diocese to welcome the new Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham Usher


Bishop Graham’s enthronement as the seventy-second Bishop of Norwich will take place at the first of these services on Saturday  9 November in Norwich Cathedral (ticket only).  This symbolic ceremony will see the bishop formally seated for the first time on the ancient throne at the east end of the Cathedral, and it marks the beginning of his public ministry in the Diocese
 
To ensure as many people as possible can welcome the new Bishop, additional services of welcome will be held in Great Yarmouth, Cromer, Thetford and King’s Lynn.  These services will be open to all – there is no need to book – and will include elements from the Cathedral service with the addition of locally organised worship
