Farewell services for Bishop Graham

26 November 2018
Hundreds of people gathered at Norwich Cathedral to wish the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham James, and his wife Julie a very fond farewell. On Sunday 25 November two very special services marked the retirement of Bishop Graham after nearly two decades of serving the Diocese of Norwich and a career with the church spanning more than 40 years.
