Deanery visits

Bishop Steven visited each of the 29 deaneries in the Diocese of Oxford during 2022, meeting with clergy and laity and visiting community projects.

The deanery visits were an integral part of +Steven's episcopal ministry in 2022; a year which, Bishop Steven says, was a chance "to listen and to encourage the Church to be the best we can be in this time, for the sake of God’s world".
