The Revd Canon Timothy Goode, will be installed as York Minster’s new Canon for Congregational Discipleship and Nurture during Choral Evensong in the inspiring surroundings of the cathedral’s Quire on Saturday 9 September at 4pm. All are welcome.
This new post will see Tim focusing on growing and supporting the life and witness of the current congregations in the Minster, developing new congregations, and creating opportunities to encounter the Christian faith and to nurture those seeking to understand and explore their faith journey.
The Installation part of the service consists of three separate ceremonies. Tim will first be collated, a formal licensing ceremony conducted by the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell. He will then be admitted and installed into his assigned stall in the Quire by the Dean of York, Dominic Barrington.
Tim will become one of the four Executive Trustee members of the Chapter of York, the Church of England governing body responsible for York Minster, and will be part of the cathedral’s clergy team led by the Dean of York.
