"Pastoral support has been offered to Diocesan staff, and I am sure that you will continue to hold the work of the Diocese in your prayers.
"I am determined that this process should be dealt with fairly and in the correct manner, and therefore it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this stage."
In a statement, Lincolnshire Police said: "Lincolnshire Police can confirm that they have had a matter officially referred to them by Lincoln Diocese. However, at the moment, it is too early to say whether this will lead to an investigation until initial enquiries have been made."
