New Incumbent

Appointment of Priest-in-Charge at Croydon Minster (Croydon, St John the Baptist) by the Archbishop of York with the Bishop of Southwark

We are delighted to announce that the Reverend Canon Dr Andrew Bishop, presently Residentiary Canon of Guildford Cathedral and Anglican Chaplain to the University of Surrey in the Diocese of Guildford, has been appointed Priest-in-Charge of Croydon Minster. We are very excited that Fr Andrew and his family will be joining us at this time of so many new developments in Croydon, both civic and pastoral.

Fr Andrew was ordained in St Paul's Cathedral in 1996 and served at parishes in the London Diocese and the Diocese of Winchester before moving to Guildford Cathedral in 2011. He is married to Alice and they have four children.
