The Rt Revd Paul Butler, Bishop of Durham has become a Patron of charity â€˜EXPLOREâ€™ (The Students Exploring Marriage Trust).
The charity whose aim is: â€˜To enable young people to explore the realities of marriage and lasting relationships in our society todayâ€™, asked Bishop Paul to become a Patron because of his work with children and young people and as a champion of families and welfare in the House of Lords.
Bishop Paul said: â€œI was delighted to be asked to become patron of â€˜EXPLOREâ€™. Having shared some of their work when I was Bishop of Southampton and seen its value, it made it easy and a delight to accept the invitation.
â€œThe work of the charity is closely aligned to that of the Church and so it was an easy decision to make in saying yes.â€
The Charity’s founder Rex Chester said: â€œWe are very excited that Bishop Paul has graciously agreed to become one of our patronâ€™s. The work we do with young people shows time and time again that they value â€˜Familyâ€™ and â€˜Strong Relationshipsâ€™, having Bishop Paul as one of our Patrons adds enormously to our profile and our work with young people.
