College welcomes new chaplain

Published Date: 29 September 2008
Monday, 3pm - A NEW chaplain, who will work at Grantham and Stamford Colleges, received a warm Grantham welcome on Thursday.
Peter Weeks was welcomed to Grantham College by the Bishop of Grimsby The Rt Rev David Rossdale, representatives from Lincolnshire Chaplaincy Services and Churches Together, staff and students from both colleges and the Mayoresses of Grantham and Stamford Couns Avril Williams and Maureen Jalili.

His appointment marks the start of a new partnership between the colleges, which have never employed an on-site chaplain before.

Australian-born Peter has degrees in economics and psychology and was an actuary for a multi-national insurance company before achieving his Certificate in Theology.

He said: "I am looking forward to building strong links between both colleges, local faith leaders and respective wider communities in Grantham and Stamford."
