Bishop’s Move

The Bishop of St Germans will take services at St Wenn (10am) and
Withiel (11.15 am) on Sunday 14th  August 2022.

From Simon Coy, Secretary of St Clement, Withiel:

We don’t see a Bishop very often,and when we do it is important that we
show that the Churches in our community have support at a time when
re-organization and rationalization are in the air.  Some of you may not have seen what I wrote in this month’s Withiel Magazine:

“For the first time in many years, we have a Bishop preaching at
Withiel.  The Bishop of St Germans will visit and preach on Sunday 14th
August at 11.15.  the Revd Hugh Nelson was born in 1972. He studied theology at
Worcester College, Oxford, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (BA)
degree in 1994.  Before starting ministry in the Church of England, he
spent 13 years working at L’Arche London, a charity supporting adults
with learning disabilities.  He trained for ordination at Ripon College
Cuddesdon from 2007 to 2009.  His appointment to St Germans was
announced in January 2020. He was consecrated in the Chapel of Lambeth
Palace to 15 July 2020. The principal consecrator was Rt Revd Dame Sarah Mullally,
Bishop of London, rather than the Archbishop of Canterbury: this was the
first time a female bishop had led a consecration service in the Church
of England. Since 20 September 2021, he has also been Bishop to the
Forces.  Hugh is married to Lizzie. Together they have four children. 
We extend a very warm welcome to Hugh to Withiel.”
