I am pleased to announce the appointment of The Ven Rosemary Lain-Priestley and The Revd Dr Jason Roach to support me in my ministry as the Bishop of London.  They both will be working part time as Researchers and Advisers on policy and strategy.

The Ven Rosemary Lain-Priestley who was previously at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Dean of Women in the Two Cities will stand down as Archdeacon at the end of the year. The Revd Dr Jason Roach is a doctor by background and has been ministering within the palace of Westminster and will start in February 2019.
