Archbishop Michael is pleased to announce the appointment of the Reverend Kent Middleton as Diocesan Warden of Readers and the Reverend Jim Young as Vocations Adviser for the Gulf Archdeaconry.
Fr Kent takes over from Dr Angel Afolabi, who is returning from Bahrain to her home in the United States. Archbishop Michael paid tribute to Dr Afolabi, a longstanding member of Synod and outgoing Chair of the House of Laity. “The Diocese will sorely miss Angel, whose warmth and commitment have been appreciated by so many. We wish her well in all she does.”
Archbishop Michael also thanked the Reverend Canon Harrison Chinnakumar for his work as Vocations Adviser for the Gulf and member of the Diocesan Ministry Team. “Fr Harrison has made a significant contribution to supporting the Ministry project in the Gulf,” said Archbishop Michael. “We thank him for his work.”
