Bishop Glyn to take part in the enthronement of the new Bishop Liverpool on Saturday

Posted on the 12th Nov 2014 in the Category - News



In his capacity as an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Liverpool +Glyn has been invited to attend and take part in the enthronement of The Rt Revd Paul Bayes as Bishop Liverpool on Saturday 15 November.  Before deciding whether to be present in Liverpool he consulted the members of the Forward in Faith Council.  Their advice was that we should take the opportunities to be present at such significant diocesan occasions.  Sadly he will therefore not be able to be present at this year's Forward in Faith National Assembly.  Nevertheless Bishop Glyn will be praying for the National Assembly and all those attending it, that it may be a good day for us in our part of the church.



Appointment of the New Bishop of Burnley

Posted on the 7th Nov 2014 in the Category - Announcements



Following today's announcement of Fr Philip North, Team Rector of Parish of Old St Pancras, Diocese of London, as the next Bishop of Burnley, Bishop Glyn has been in contact with Fr North to greet him on his appointment to be a Bishop in the Church of God, and assures him of his prayers for his future ministry.   Obviously, Bishop Glyn and Fr Philip will be working closely together in the further, together of course with Bishop Tony.  He is looking forward to this.

 

Bishop Glyn is hugely encouraged by Bishop Julian's approach to Fr North's appointment.  Please read here what he has said about it:

"I wanted to have an episcopal colleague who is from the traditionalist catholic constituency and Philip fulfils that role well. He comes to serve the whole Diocese. He will also have particular care for those people who cannot accept the ministry of women as Bishops and Priests in the Church – and he will have my wholehearted support in carrying out this important work.”

We express our gratitude to Bishop Julian for his generosity of spirit and his commitment to mutual flourishing with the life of the church.
