Bishop Of Durham Visits The Manor House As Part Of Prayer Walk

The Rt Revd Paul Butler, Bishop of Durham, met residents and staff at The Manor House, Whickham for afternoon tea on Thursday 14 May.

The visit was part of Bishop Paul’s four day Prayer Walk to get to know the people in Gateshead West Deanery, part of the Diocese of Durham. The Prayer Walk is the first of two happening this year in a cycle of walks over eight years.

Bishop Paul said: “It was a delight to visit The Manor House. The reason for doing these Prayer Walks is so I can get to meet a wider range of people but also as we walk and pray together we seek to bless, and be blessed by, the people and communities we visit. I love doing them."

Liz Dixon, manager of The Manor House said: “We are involved with the churches in Whickham and were very excited to be chosen as one of the meeting points for the Prayer Walk.

“Our residents and staff have looked forward to Bishop Paul’s visit and enjoyed talking with him.”

The Manor House provides residential, nursing and dementia care and is part of Hadrian Healthcare Group.
