We are delighted to announce that Rt Rev Mark Tanner, Bishop of Berwick, is our new Patron Bishop. (He takes over from Rt Rev Martin Seeley, who is now Chair of Ministry Council.)
Bishop Mark is passionate about ordinands receiving training of the highest quality, and formerly served as Warden of Cranmer Hall, Durham. While his role as our Patron does not involve direct responsibility for the management of the Association, he will be a great advocate in the wider church and will be available to advise our Standing Committee.
Earlier this year Bishop Mark wrote in our Training Matters series about why the needs of the world demand that ordinands receive the best possible training.
