There number of vicars in Lincolnshire could be cut due to financial challenges faced by the Diocese of Lincoln, including the coronavirus pandemic, the acting Bishop of Lincoln has warned.
The Rt Revd Dr David Court, who's also the Bishop of Grimsby, says the church needs to be "creative" in how it approaches the current situation.
The Diocese of Lincoln cannot continue to afford the number of vicars it currently has and the coronavirus pandemic has also hit its finances, he says
Job roles will also be under review, he adds.
