The Church of England - - News -

The foun­da­tion stone has been laid for a new £2m Dioce­san Cen­tre for the Dio­cese of Durham. The cer­e­mony, which in­cluded a short ser­vice of ded­i­ca­tion and the bury­ing of a time cap­sule con­tain­ing items pro­vided by chil­dren from three schools in the dio­cese, took place at Stone­bridge, near Nevilles Cross, Durham. Two chil­dren from each of the schools, along with the Bishop of Durham, the Rt Rev Paul But­ler, signed the time cap­sule. Bishop Paul said: “It is a very pow­er­ful, sym­bolic mo­ment; it says this build­ing is hap­pen­ing and we will be mov­ing here and we are build­ing on the foun­da­tion of Je­sus Christ.”
