The Bishop-designate of Repton is the Revd Canon Malcolm Macnaughton
Malcolm was formerly Chief of Staff to the Archbishop of York and was educated at Queens’ College Cambridge.
He trained for ministry at Ridley Hall and served his title at St Andrew’s Haughton-le-Skerne, in the diocese of Durham, and was ordained Priest in 1982.
Malcolm is married to Pam, an ordained pioneer minister and a leadership specialist with the Church Pastoral Aid Society.
He was introduced to the Diocese of Derby in November 2020 and said: “I am much looking forward to working with Bishop Libby and colleagues in the Diocese of Derby, and am excited by the task ahead.
"The COVID crisis is tough for everyone, and we need to be focussed on bringing real hope to those most at risk, those living in poverty, and young people who have so much to offer, but whose opportunities for education, development, and employment, are so limited just now.
"It is great to see the Church in Derby and Derbyshire finding new ways, alongside the old, of being church and seeking the common good.
"What a privilege to be called by God to join you and to share the next stage of this journey!”
Malcolm's consecration as bishop and installation as Bishop of Repton has been postponed because of the current Covid-19 restrictions.
However, he has been licensed by Bishop Libby to work in the diocese as bishop-designate and it is hoped that his consecration will be possible in March or April.
