Bishop Geoff’s farewell service at Blackburn Cathedral – 15th July 2017

Bishop Geoff’s farewell service at Blackburn Cathedral took place on Saturday 15th July 2017 at 11.30am.

Geoff and Jean were of course the focus of the service, but a number of our congregation also travelled over to Blackburn in support and celebration of their ministry at St. James and the Diocese.

Jean commended the service, saying “it was a bit like being at your own funeral in an odd way – all the lovely accolades and stories about us, but actually being there to hear them, and of course, being around afterwards to thank people and be back on duty the following day!”

There will be an additional farewell service at St. James Church, Shireshead, Forton, Lancashire, on Sunday 30th July at 10am, followed by a Jacob’s Join in the village hall.
