Bishop Michael Marshall was preaching this morning at Holy Trinity Sloane Street where he was incumbent for a decade.
But the big news was that his successor as Rector, Rob Gillion, is to be Bishop of Riverina in New South Wales, Australia.
The enthronement is next August. The see has been vacant for more than a year.
The bishop-elect is a former actor and current Chairman of the Actors’ Church Union. He is known widely for his broadcasting including on Pause for Thought on BBC Radio 2.
Rob Gillion’s maternal grandfather was a missionary priest in Australia.
