The Revd Canon Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy, currently Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Mission and Ministry Enabler in the Diocese of Leicester, has today been announced as the Diocese of London’s next Bishop of Willesden, covering the boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon.
The official announcement from Downing Street came while Canon Lusa visited Twyford School, a leading Church of England School in Acton, students from which played a role in deciding his appointment. The Sixth Form students, who judged sermons from shortlisted candidates, this morning welcomed Lusa and the Bishop of London, Sarah Mullally, at a special assembly, with Alice Hudson, Executive Head Teacher of Twyford CofE Academies Trust.
As part of today’s introduction to the Willesden Area, Canon Lusa will meet clergy and interfaith leaders from the local community.
He will be consecrated in January 2022, and will join the College of Bishops in the Diocese of London. He succeeds the Rt Revd Pete Broadbent as Bishop of Willesden, who served as Bishop for 20 years.
Delighted that Revd Canon Lusa Nsenga-Ngoy has been appointed as the next Bishop of Willesden! Canon Lusa spoke powerfully at the launch of our Inclusion and Diversity programme last month. Welcome @Lustherev! @dioceseoflondon 🥳 🎉 https://t.co/GEOQgUFlrW
