New Bishop of Chester

Good news – it was announced that the next Bishop of Chester will be the Rt Revd Mark Tanner. He is at present the suffragan Bishop of Berwick in the diocese of Newcastle, but he began his ministry in this diocese when he was ordained at Chester Cathedral in 1998, serving in the parish of Upton on the Wirral. Please remember Bishop Mark and his wife, Lindsay, in your prayers as they prepare to move to this diocese.
