Installation of the Dean of Newcastle
October 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Collation, Induction and Installation of The Venerable Geoff Miller as Dean of Newcastle
Saturday 20th October 2018 at 4pm
Hundreds are expected at Newcastle Cathedral this weekend as the Venerable Geoff Miller is installed as Dean of Newcastle.
Geoff, 62, was previously Archdeacon of Northumberland before being appointed Dean earlier this year.
The special service will take place at 4pm this Saturday, 20th October, led by the Bishop of Newcastle, the Right Reverend Christine Hardman.
This service marks the beginning of a new ministry for Geoff, the Cathedral and the Diocese. It is a service of thanksgiving for God’s work among us, and it also enacts a legal process by which Geoff is made Dean of Newcastle.
Geoff’s installation comes at an exciting time for Newcastle Cathedral as it progresses with its ambitious £6 million Common Ground in Sacred Space project to transform the nave, renew visitor facilities and reshape external spaces. The work will return the Cathedral to the community hub role it has played in the city centre for centuries, and shortly it will hear whether its Round Two application to the Heritage Lottery Fund has been successful.
All are welcome to attend.
