The Bishop of Winchester has stepped down from his role, citing “upset” caused by the diocese’s financial decisions over the past year.
In a statement Dr Tim Dakin said he would be retiring in February and handing over responsibilities in the meantime.
He was consecrated the 97th Bishop of Winchester in 2011.
“The painfully difficult financial decisions made over the last year have caused real anguish,” he said.
