Deeping St James is to have a new priest when Sue Paterson is licensed at the village church on April 30 by the Bishop of Grantham.
Former teacher Sue (57) was ordained in 1995 and has so far spent all of her ministry in Leicestershire.
She’s looking forward to her move and meeting parishioners to share ideas on developing new ventures.
“We might for instance have a mother and toddlers’ service at church, we might go into schools and we might try and run a cinema club in the church hall,” said Sue.
Sue graduated from Oxford with a degree in modern languages.
She’s married to retired teacher Charles and they have sons Richard (30) and Jeremy (28).
