Diocesan Bishops now have the power to designate any church as a minister.
Stoke on Trent St. Peter is now a Minister. The Diocese of Lichfield is
divided into 3 Episcopal areas and the designation of Stoke as a Minister is
perhaps to give some from of recognition to that Area.  In my view it is a
sop to locals who feel neglected with the Mother church some 30 miles away.


I agree with David that the physical isolation of Doncaster St. George in
the town centre makes it a very odd choice for a Minster.
