Archbishop pays tribute to retiring judge

by Aaron James

His Honour Philip Price QC is retiring as Chair of the Standing Committee of the Church in Wales after 11 years' service. He has been a member of the Governing Body since 1993.

Judge Philip also chaired the Legal Sub Committee for 11 years and was the first President of the Church's Disciplinary Tribunal.

After working as a Queen's Counsel barrister in Cardiff and London, Price served for 15 years as a circuit judge specialising in civil and family work. He is also President of LATCH, Wales' children's cancer charity.

The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, said: "Philip has given of his time, gifts and of himself unstintingly in a variety of voluntary capacities and will be solely missed in the councils of the Church in Wales.

"He has been an enormous attribute to the life of the Church. I thank him for all he has done and wish him every blessing for the future."

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
