Newsletter – 25th February 2024


The following statement regarding Canon Christopher Whitehead was issued this morning:

“The Episcopal Ordination of Canon Christopher Whitehead will not take place on 22nd February 2024 as expected. Canon Paul Cummins continues as the Diocesan Administrator. A canonical process is currently underway, and no further comments will be made until this process has been concluded. Canon Christopher Whitehead has stepped back from active ministry whilst this process is ongoing.”

May I ask that you keep Canon Christopher in your prayers and please continue to pray for those who are responsible for choosing a bishop for us.  Please continue to keep me and our Diocese, in your prayers.

God bless,

Canon Paul Cummins
Diocesan Administrator
