The Rt Rev Dr John Thom­son, Bishop of Selby, re­turns to Castle Howard to pre­side and preach at a ser­vice of Holy Com­mu­nion on Sun­day 6 Septem­ber.

Bishop John hasn’t been to the Castle since li­cens­ing the first fe­male chap­lain to have taken up the role at Castle Howard, the Rev Anne Free­stone.

He added: “I’m look­ing for­ward to vis­it­ing Castle Howard again and cel­e­brat­ing Holy Com­mu­nion in the Chapel. At­tend­ing a ser­vice in the Chapel is the best way to ex­pe­ri­ence and un­der­stand the space; it was built and beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated to be a place where God is wor­shipped and hon­oured.

“I hope that peo­ple who visit Castle Howard, but who might not go to church on a Sun­day, will come to the ser­vice and feel welcome.”
