Lambeth Palace has announced that the Bishop of St Germans, the Rt Revd Hugh Nelson will take over the role of Bishop to the Armed Forces in September.
Bishop Hugh will be formally licensed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, during a meeting of the College of Bishops in Oxford on September 20.
Bishop Hugh is taking over from Bishop Tim Thornton, Bishop at Lambeth, who is retiring after four years in the post.
Please join me in praying for the Rt Revd Hugh Nelson as he takes on a new role as Bishop to the Armed Forces this month https://t.co/VEHdOJkzVF
