Lancashire’s new Bishop sends YouTube message to the people of Lancashire following his inauguration
10:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
LANCASHIRE’S new Bishop, Rev Julian Henderson has taken the early opportunity to send greetings to everyone living in the region as he starts his new role via the Church of England in Lancashire’s new YouTube channel.
The greeting comes two weeks after the Diocese of Blackburn launched the new channel by uploading a six minute introduction interview with Bishop Julian and since then that interview has been viewed nearly 1000 times.
Speaking this week Bishop Julian, who has begun a series of deanery days which will see him visit every part of the County between now and Christmas, said: “After so many months of expectation, and the various events of the last two weeks, it feels very good to have finally arrived and be placed in my seat in Blackburn Cathedral.
“I see this as a symbol of being called to serve the church and people of Lancashire as a pastor. Now I look forward to getting on with the task ahead.
In the video greeting he adds: “I want to wish you well and to say that I hope that we shall meet in due course one way or another and I hope I shall be one of those people who is approachable and that you feel you can be in touch with if you need to.
“It is a great privilege to move to Lancashire to enjoy the delights of the County and I do look forward to sharing life here with you over these next weeks, months and years as well.”
