Bishop Emma welcomed as the new Bishop of Kensington

On Sunday, the Rt Revd Dr Emma Ineson was formally introduced as the new Bishop of Kensington at a service at St Barnabas Kensington led by the Bishop of London, the Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally.


Bishop Emma was announced as the next Bishop of Kensington in December, succeeding the Rt Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, who stepped down in August to lead the Centre for Cultural Witness.

The service at St Barnabas was attended by members of the local community and many clergy from the Kensington Area, with the MP for Hammersmith, Andy Slaughter, joining the celebration.

The Rt Revd Dr Emma Ineson, the new Bishop of Kensington, said: “I would like to thank all those who came to the wonderful service on Sunday, as well as St Barnabas for hosting. I am very much look forward to serving the people of Kensington with joy and love in Jesus’ name, and to visiting more parishes within the Kensington Area in my first few months as Bishop here.”

The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, Bishop of London, said:“Sunday was a wonderful way to come together in prayer to welcome Bishop Emma to West London. It was a joy-filled service which brought together the local community and clergy, and I join them in looking forward to see her continuing along God’s path here in the Diocese of London.”
