The Diocese of York is pleased to announce that the Rt Revd James Jones, former Bishop of Liverpool, is to deliver the fourth ‘Cleveland Matters’ address on Wednesday 12 October at 7pm at St Peter & St Paul Church, Pickering. All are welcome to attend.

The Rt Revd Paul Ferguson, Bishop of Whitby said: “I am delighted that Bishop James is delivering the fourth address for Cleveland Matters looking at environmental issues, ethics and regeneration; and about faith and the future of the earth.  In our stewardship of all the good things that God has entrusted to us, we are living out God’s care for the world that He has created. What we say we believe is made visible by what we do.”
