Bishop Richard Chartres’s last public engagement as Bishop of London was a Eucharist for Candlemas at St Paul’s Cathedral on 2 February 2017. He retires after 21 years in post.
In thanksgiving for 21 years of service, we are launching the Richard Chartres Fund for London, with the aim of ensuring London is a city with a flourishing church at the heart of every community.
London said goodbye to the 132nd Bishop of London last night at a Candlemas service held at St Paul’s Cathedral, celebrating Bishop Richard’s thirty-three years of ministry in London.
The Richard Chartres Fund for London has been established to fund vital growth of the Church and provide communities with buildings that are fit for purpose and support children and young people.
