    Hundreds attended Newcastle Cathedral this weekend as the Venerable Geoff Miller was installed as Dean of Newcastle.

    Geoff, 62, was previously Archdeacon of Northumberland before being appointed Dean earlier this year.

    The special service took place at 4pm on Saturday, 20th October, led by the Bishop of Newcastle, the Right Reverend Christine Hardman.

    Bishop Christine said: “There has been great excitement since my announcement in June that Geoff is to be our next Dean. His absolute commitment to all the communities we serve and his passion for the North East and Newcastle make him the ideal person to be leading our great Cathedral.

    “For centuries, Newcastle Cathedral has been a place of sanctuary, hospitality, welcome and worship, and it’s the Mother Church for all of our Diocese. Geoff’s installation is an opportunity for us all to celebrate both his appointment and the important role the Cathedral plays in daily Newcastle life.”

    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.

    At the time of his appointment, Geoff said: “We are on the cusp of something truly exciting here in Newcastle. There’s enormous energy and excitement as we look to the future of our wonderful Cathedral.

    “We strive to be bold in everything we do, and together with our city centre partners, we’re committed to making sure Newcastle has a cathedral to be proud of – one that is diverse, visibly proud of its heritage and welcoming to everyone.”

    Note: North News and Pictures will be capturing photographs of the event and will make them available on the day. Please let us know if you require them.

    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.
