The Diocesan Synod meeting on 12th March 2016 passed unanimously the following motion moved by Bishop Christopher:
expresses its support for the Area System as currently operated and requests the Bishop of Southwark to notify the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Dioceses Commission of his proposal to appoint to the See of Woolwich.
Following the appointment of The Rt Revd Dr Michael Ipgrave to the See of Lichfield, The Bishop of Southwark will be following the national guidelines in seeking to appoint a new Bishop of Woolwich, when the See becomes vacant in June. This will include drawing up a Role and Person Specification with the assistance of a small Advisory Group. There will also be a formal period of consultation in due course. In the meantime Bishop Christopher is grateful for the correspondence he has already received and invites anyone who has thoughts or reflections concerning the appointment of a new Bishop of Woolwich to write to him, in confidence, at Trinity House or to email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that you will find everything you need to know about the Anglican Church in South London and East Surrey - its people, parishes, churches and schools.
We invite you to pray with scripture chosen specially every day of the month
