Dio­cese of Liver­pool

The Church of England - - NEWS -

As part of its growth agenda, the Bishop of Liver­pool, the Rt Rev Paul Bayes, has col­lated three new Archdea­cons. The three, Jen­nifer McKen­zie, Pete Spiers, Roger Preece, each be­come Archdea­cons of three new ar­eas. They join the Archdea­con of Liver­pool, the Ven Ricky Pan­ter, as part of the se­nior clergy team in the dio­cese.

The im­pe­tus came from Bishop Paul’s pa­per on Fit for Mis­sion, which was en­dorsed, by Dioce­san Synod and Bishop’s Coun­cil in 2014. The aim is to cre­ate a struc­ture of sup­port with Archdea­cons hav­ing smaller ar­eas to re­late to, giv­ing them greater abil­ity to of­fer prac­ti­cal sup­port to par­ishes. The four Archdea­con­ries are: Liver­pool, Knowsley and Sefton, St He­lens and War­ring­ton and Wi­gan and West Lan­cashire.
