Hull East

Hull Deanery centres on the city of Kingston upon Hull, which is home to over 257,000 people, making it the biggest city in the Diocese of York. Hull suffered heavy damage in the blitz, its fishing industry declined in the 1970s, and its industry is now focused on the chemical and health care sectors. Selected as the UK’s City of Culture in 2017, Hull is also home to Hull Truck Theatre, Hull City football club, Hull FC rugby club, and Hull Kingston Rovers. Find out more about the churches in Hull Deanery here.

On BBC Radio Humberside this week, the Archbishop gave a reflection on Easter Sunday ‘Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!’ and spoke about cooking organic lamb with Mary Berry as part of the Mary Berry Easter Feast programme as broadcast on BBC 2. 
The Director of Acts 435, Jenny Herrera, explained more about the charity’s Easter Appeal to give 40 fresh starts – and the difference the charity is making in people’s lives.
Highlights of the Pilgrimage of Prayer, Witness and Blessing in East Hull in Holy Week included a visit to HMP Hull, meeting families and penguins at The Deep on Good Friday, blessing Hull KR’s stadium ahead of the local derby and the fantastic schools throughout the week.
