Appointments to two new roles in support of the Diocesan learning community have been announced.
The Reverend Kent Middleton, parish priest of St Luke Ras Al Khaimah, has accepted the role of Chaplain to the learning community.
“This a valuable pastoral role,” said Archbishop Michael, “accompanying those in the process of deepening Christian education and formation, particularly in and around key moments of discernment.”
Dr Angel Afolabi, based in Bahrain, is to be Warden of Readers.
Archbishop Michael said, “It will be a delight to have a serving Reader as Warden, especially one who possesses such inspiring energy and drive.”
The Diocesan learning community consists of those recommended for training for a licensed ministry and those currently in training, extending to include those two to three years post-Licensing/Ordination.
Fr Kent and Dr Afolabi join the Ministry Team, alongside Director of Ministry Canon Dr John Holdsworth, Archdeacon Christopher Futcher, the Reverend Canon Harrison Chinnakumar, the Reverend Canon Dr Paul Burt and Dr Helen Perry.
