A new dean of St Paul's Cathedral has been elected, as Very Rev Dr David Ison prepares for retirement.
The Very Rev Andrew Tremlett will be assuming the position in what has been called an "important moment", as the London cathedral looks to shape its future post-pandemic.
The Rev Dr Ison has maintained the role for almost ten years, guiding the 17th Century cathedral through "many challenges" during his time at the helm.
The incoming Dean of St Paul's, the Very Revd Andrew Tremlett, said: "I am delighted to be appointed as Dean of St Paul's, following David Ison's faithful tenure over the past decade.
"I'm keenly aware that I join the team at St Paul's at a pivotal time with both immediate and systemic challenges.
"I hope to be able to draw on my experience at other great centres of worship - Westminster Abbey and Durham Cathedral - both UNESCO World Heritage sites, helping to rebuild life at St Paul's as the global economy reopens.
"An international outlook is essential for me and my faith has been deepened through my engagement with the Missions to Seafarers around the world, as well as a keen interest in inter-faith dialogue.
"The Cathedral also has an important role to play in supporting the Diocese of London's vision for every Londoner to encounter the love of God in Christ.
"I am looking forward to working with colleagues and across the Capital's diverse churches to reach out to Londoners and share the Good News of Jesus Christ."
