Bishop of Bradford holds service for new Rector of Bolton Priory
More than 300 people filled the church as the local congregation was joined by many visitors from Sheffield where Rev Cowling was previously Precentor at the Cathedral.
The Rev Cowling was presented to the Bishop of Bradford by the Priory’s Patron, the Duke of Devonshire.
The proceedings concluded with afternoon tea in the Village Hall, providing the opportunity to meet the new Rector and his family, the Bishop, and the Duke in less formal surroundings.
