New Bishop of Crediton

I am delighted to be appointed as the Bishop of Crediton. During the day I visited projects in Devon which show that our communities, inside the Church and out, are built on the love and compassion people have for each other. In even our smallest rural communities, often where many of the other services and facilities have long gone, the church – and it can sometimes be just a few people – remains, as a symbol of God’s enduring love.

Throughout my life, as both a nurse and a priest, I have experienced this love and I hope as Bishop to be able to share that love with others.

My calling as a Christian and now as Bishop has been shaped by my belief that we are called to be witnesses to the generous love of God and the good news of Christ Jesus.  In my future ministry in the Diocese of Exeter I hope to encourage and enable Christians to grow in their faith, to share that faith with confidence and to serve the people of Devon with joy.
