The reflections of a rural archdeacon on life and issues in the Yorkshire Dales. Supporting over 180 churches in an area that covers Teesdale, Swaledale, Wensleydale, Nidderdale, Harrogate and Wetherby, a Church of England archdeacon shares some of the questions and challenges that everyday ministry throws up.
Congratulations to the cathedral on their exciting new website - one of the best I've seen lately and well worth a visit if you are looking for ideas for days out, services, educational, arts and recreational events. It amazes me that one community can be engaged in so much! I am looking forward to the Advent services tomorrow and then, of course, all the Christmas services which the choir are busy practising for. The cathedral looks spectaular after today's snowfall. http://www.riponcathedral.org.uk/
