The Archbishop of York visits the Diocese of Chester

The Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, made a missionary visit to the Chester diocese from 21-23 June to share in and encourage the mission of the church, to show the love of God and to make him known to the 1.5 million people of our diocese. 

Over the next few days, we'll be posting short videos of the places he visited and the people he spoke to.

St Chad’s CE Primary School Winsford

The school is to be the location of a new worshipping community under the national Flourish initiative, in which schools and churches form a genuine partnership.
