Following the resignation of The Rt Revd Jan McFarlane, as the Bishop of Repton, the See fell vacant on the 31st March 2020.
Bishop Libby writes:
The consultation period for the appointment of the next Bishop of Repton has begun.
That consultation, through The Church Times, asks for comment and suggestion from the whole Church to help identify and clarify ‘the needs of the role’ and to ‘propose candidates’.
But we’d really like to hear from you in the Diocese of Derby, where the Bishop of Repton will serve.
Please be in touch, with me, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Rachel Morris, Diocesan Secretary, at email@example.com, to let us know what characteristics, gifts, and experience you think are going to be valuable – and of you have anyone to suggest for consideration.
And please pray, for the diocese, for the process, for those tasked with discernment, and those considering if God is calling them here with us.
