New Bishop of Ramsbury appointed

The Queen has approved the nomination of Rev Dr Andrew Rumsey, Rector of Oxted in Surrey, as suffragan Bishop of Ramsbury in the Diocese of Salisbury.



Dr Rumsey, aged 50, is married with three children.  He has worked in Oxted since 2011, when he moved to the town from South-East London.

Responding to the news, Dr Rumsey issued the following statement:   “I am honoured and delighted to have been appointed as the new Bishop of Ramsbury, where I shall be helping to lead the Church of England’s work in the glorious county of Wiltshire. We have made many friends during our time in Oxted and Tandridge and we shall miss Surrey and the parishes here very much."  

"At a time of rapid change in our society, the enduring strength of the Church of England is its commitment to serving local communities, in all parts of the country. I greatly look forward to serving this purpose in the Diocese of Salisbury.

Ramsbury is an ancient episcopal title. The first Bishop of Ramsbury was Athelstan, appointed in 909AD. The title lapsed for several centuries, but was revived in the twentieth century.

Andrew Rumsey and his wife Rebecca will remain in Oxted until Christmas before moving to Marlborough. Dr Rumsey will be ordained to the episcopate on 25 January 2019.

 

The previous Bishop of Ramsbury, the Right Reverend Edward Francis Condry, retired at the end of April 2018.
