New Bishop Co-ordinators for the Society


Following the announcement of his retirement this September, Bishop Martyn Jarrett has announced that he will be stepping down as bishop co-ordinator of The Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda. He went on to announce that the Bishop of Pontefract, the Rt Revd Tony Robinson, will take over as bishop co-ordinator for the Province of York, and that the Bishop of Plymouth, the Rt Revd John Ford, will become the bishop co-ordinator for the Province of Canterbury. Announcing the news, Bishop Martyn said: I am delighted that Bishop John and Bishop Tony have agreed to take on these roles in the New Year and of course much encouraged that the growth of The Society over recent months has been such that the task of co-ordination must now be shared between two of my brother bishops. They will of course enjoy my utmost support and encouragement as they take up the task of moving The Society forward at such a challenging and difficult juncture in the life of our Church.
