Bishop of Derby announces he will retire in 2018

Dear colleagues,

I am writing to let you know that I will be retiring as Bishop of Derby from 31st August next year.

It is an enormous privilege to be working with you in the Diocese and I hope that this early notice will give time for prayerful discernment of God’s call into the future.

There will be more details about farewells in due course.

Thank you for your partnership in the Gospel.

Every blessing.

Yours ever,


The Diocese of Derby
