The Bishop of Tewkesbury, the Right Revd Bishop Robert Springett visited the 6 o’clock Gin/Bramley and Gage gin distillery as part of a series of ‘Take a bishop to work’ events. His aim is to see how Christians live out their faith in the workplace.
Bishop Robert said: “For the vast majority of us our discipleship is focused in how we live out our faith among the people and in the places where our daily lives take us. In education, family, community and for much of our work, medicine or management, cleaning or caring, accountancy or archaeology.
This is why I am spent the afternoon with Felicity Hall, who’s the Director of 6 o’clock Gin/Bramley and Gage, discovering more about her work and the way this connects with her faith and her ministry as a Reader, a trained lay theologian sharing the ministry and leadership of the church.”
Coming up in the next few months, he will also be visiting an auctioneers, a letting agents, and doing rugby coaching in schools. Will he be a talented auctioneer? Will his team win the match? And what can a bishop learn to help us all live life in all its fullness where it takes us as we seek to follow Jesus Christ.
