Bishop Stephen has expressed his sadness at the news that his Chaplain, Revd Leslie Rogers, will be leaving at the end of January 2017.
Thanking Leslie for his fantastic support Bishop Stephen has said:
"I am very pleased that the door of opportunity has opened for Leslie but I am enormously sad to be losing him as my Chaplain. He has brought tremendous wisdom and experience to this post."
Leslie will be moving to the Isle of Wight where his partner, John, has been offered a new job.
