News arrived yesterday from Bishop Stephen:
I am delighted to give you the good news that Her Majesty The Queen has approved the nomination of The Venerable Roger Morris as the new Bishop of Colchester.
The email continues: “Roger Morris comes to us with great experience of ministry in rural areas. His previous ministry as diocesan director of parish development and evangelism, as rector of a number of parishes, and latterly as Archdeacon of Worcester will be a huge asset to the diocese. Roger brings evangelistic flair and a strong teaching ministry. He will bring energetic and creative leadership to the Colchester Episcopal Area at a time of great opportunity for the church in north Essex.”
