Bishop names new assistant

Have your say

THE Bishop of Sheffield, the Right Reverend Dr Steven Croft, has named a new honorary assistant bishop in the diocese.

The Bishop of Beverley, The Right Reverend Glyn Webster, was only ordained as a bishop by the Archbishop of York, the Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr John Sentamu, last month.

Until recently Mr Webster’s ministry was closely associated with York Minster where he was a canon for many years.

He previously worked as a nurse in Blackburn, before training for the ministry at Cranmer Hall in Durham.
