Lancashire’s Anglican Bishop, Rt Revd. Julian Henderson, will be promoting the county at next week’s Christian Resources Exhibition (CRE) North at Event City, Manchester.
He said: “CRE North is an important event in the calendar for people from all the churches throughout the north west.
“It is an excellent opportunity to find out about the latest resources available – as well as meet all kinds of key service providers. I look forward to looking around the stands when I visit on Wednesday.”
Bishop Julian, the Bishop of Blackburn, will launch a campaign highlighting the region as a great place to live, work and do ministry.
It comes in response to recent media coverage that some clergy were reluctant to move north. Diocese in Blackburn, Liverpool and Manchester have now joined forces to say “see for yourself”,
Visitors to CRE North will be able to talk to Bishop Julian and local clergy.
The event runs on Wednesday and Thursday. To book tickets visit www.CREonline.co.uk/buy-tickets or phone 01793 418218.
