Welcome to Bishop Andrew

It was a special occasion for the churches of the Whitton Team when the new Bishop of Ramsbury celebrated his arrival in the Salisbury Diocese by preaching and presiding at a service of Holy Communion in Holy Cross church, Ramsbury on Sunday 27 January. Bishop Andrew, who is living in Marlborough, was accompanied by his family and sat in the “Bishop’s Stall” which has a name board behind it with previous holders of the post. His responsibilities will be for the northern part of Salisbury Diocese. We look forward to other occasions, over the coming years, when he will be part of the worship and life of our churches.
