COLCHESTER’S next Bishop has been unveiled.

The Venerable Roger Morris, Archdeacon of Worcester, has been nominated by the Queen to succeed the Rt Revd Christopher Morgan.

Mr Morris said: “I am really thrilled to have been asked to come and serve the churches and people of this wonderfully varied part of Essex.

“Everyone I’ve met has been incredibly warm and friendly and generous – so much so that they have made coming here feel a lot like coming home.

“These are exciting times for the Church as we live out and celebrate our faith in new, engaging and transformative ways.

“As Bishop, I believe that it is important to make a priority of being available, being approachable and being known.”

The announcement was made as Mr Morris visited Colchester Food Bank.
