3 Bishops in a boat raise money for chapel

Background
share close

The Bishop of Dudley, Graham Usher and the Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Worcester, Robert Paterson, will be joining Rev Ian Spencer in taking turns rowing a small boat from Cropthorne to Tewkesbury.
 
They started at 8:30am and will finish around 6:30pm. At some point on the journey, they will also be joined by the Bishop of Worcester, Dr John Inge.

Rev Spencer is the warden of the chapel they are raising money for. The aim is to raise enough money to upkeep the room and install disabled access through the sponsorship. They will navigate four locks before reaching the slipway in Tolsey Road in Tewkesbury.

The chapel is part of Holland House – a home given to the Bishop of Worcester in 1946 upon the death on Mrs Holland. It is now a charitable trust for retreats and for visitors to ‘reflect on the bigger things in life’.

Three clergy are rowing for 20 miles along the River Avon in Worcester to raise money for the refurbishment of a chapel.

Brexit after six months

It is six months since Theresa May triggered Article 50 to initiate negotiations for Britain to leave the EU, 25% of the time provided for this. The negotiations have begun but made little progress in the first three rounds. Three core issues have to be settled before Britain’s future relationship with the EU can be discussed and it seems unlikely those relations, including trade, will be on the agenda before next year.
