The retirement of Bishop Glyn Webster, Bishop of Beverly has been announced by Bishopthorpe Palace today.
The Rt Revd Glyn Webster will be retiring from his role as Bishop of Beverley at Epiphany, 6 January 2022.
Bishop Paul said: “Bishop Glyn’s ministry in the Diocese of Durham has been hugely appreciated. Bishop Sarah and I have really valued the way he has worked with us as a colleague. The parishes and clergy for whom he had specific pastoral responsibility will miss his deep care for them. He has been tireless and faithful in his work. As a whole Diocese, we will miss his love of this part of God’s world and church. He has been prayerful, thoughtful and caring in all his work with us. We pray that he enjoys his well-earned retirement and hope that we will be able to find a suitable way to express our thanks to him publicly in the coming months.”
The Bishop of Beverley is a Suffragan Bishop in the Diocese of York, and a Provincial Episcopal Visitor, assisting in the pastoral care of those parishes that have petitioned for Extended Episcopal Care under the Act of Synod – the Ordination of Women to the Priesthood.
