The Anglican Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe has announced that Canon Ian Tarrant has accepted his offer to become next Dean of Holy Trinity Cathedral and the Diocese of Europe.
Canon Tarrant, 62, is married to Sally and has three grown-up children, all now living outside the UK, and two grandchildren.
Ian and Sally met as teenagers while on a course in the Diocese of Chelmsford. Ian studied physics at Cambridge University, and later trained for ordination at St John’s College, Nottingham.
It was in Nottingham, where Sally had been studying ‘maths, maths, and more maths’, that they met again and got engaged.
They spent ten challenging years working for the Church Missionary Society in the Congo, returning to Nottingham where he became the University Chaplain and where their children went to secondary school.
