Bishop of Leicester announces retirement

By the time he retires on 11 July he'll have been in the role for 16 years.

He'll move to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

Speaking about his decision he said: "Our sixteen years in Leicester have been the most demanding and fulfilling years of my life.

"It has been an immense privilege to have been Bishop of this exceptional Diocese and to have had the opportunity to be part of so many communities, organisations and projects that serve the wider community.

"There is still much to be done before I leave, but we shall owe a debt beyond words to the people of Leicester and Leicestershire for their friendship, support and love for our family and their contribution to the enrichment of our lives."

Bishop Tim has held a number of senior roles in recent years including leading the bishops in the House of Lords since 2009.

He has also served as a member of the Archbishops' Council.

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.
