Edmonton Area: West Haringey Deanery
New bishops for Edmonton and the revived See of Islington were announced by Downing Street today, alongside the next Archdeacon of Hampstead.
The Revd Rob Wickham is to serve as Bishop of Edmonton and the Revd Ric Thorpe will serve as Bishop of Islington. Prebendary John Hawkins will succeed Luke Miller as Archdeacon of Hampstead.
Forty new deacons ordained at St Paul’s Cathedral will serve churches across the Diocese of London.
Churches across the Diocese responded to the Bishops’ invitation to equip and commission people as ambassadors for Jesus Christ in daily life during Lent 2015.
Thirty six men and women joined London’s team of clergy this weekend as they were ordained deacons at St Paul’s Cathedral by the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres. The new deacons bring a huge breadth of age, background and experience to the family of clergy in the Diocese of London.
