The New Bishop of London – Announcement
On Monday December 18th Downing Street announced our own +Sarah of Crediton had been appointed by Her Majesty The Queen as the new Bishop of London. This translation will make +Sarah the first woman to inhabit this see, the third most senior in the Church of England after Canterbury and York. We remember with gratitude +Sarah presiding over our most recent Confirmation service, her generous support throughout our interregnum, and as part of ‘Bishops in Mission’, her lively involvement with our parish schools. Continue to pray for +Sarah and her husband Eamonn as they prepare for their move. Please read +Sarah’s own blog to share in her reflections, and for further information, please read her formal statements available on the Diocese of London website.
God bless +Sarah. We look forward to welcoming +Sarah on Tuesday January 16th at 19:00 to License as our new vicar Preb. Nigel Guthrie.
