Bishop of Kensington to Step Down in August

Bishop of Kensington to Step Down in August

Will Lead Centre for Cultural Witness

The Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington in the Diocese of London, will leave his current post in August of this year to take on the management of the Centre for Cultural Witness.

The Centre for Cultural Witness is slated for a four-year trial run and will have offices at Lambeth Palace.  The work will depend on charitable donations.  The McDonald Agape Foundation and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Charitable Fund are two of the sources for funding.

According to the information provided at the announcement, 

“The project will focus on the following three key areas: 

  1. Communication: The main outward facing work of the project will be a ‘magazine’ style website. This will focus not on internal church debates, but on explaining Christian faith in accessible terms and how it might contribute, challenge and respond to contemporary cultural issues and themes, in conversation with those of all faiths and none. The content of the website will be guided by an independent Editorial Board and will be committed to develop a range of both regular and occasional contributors, both well-known names and younger, more diverse voices.
  2. Learning: The Centre will draw together prominent Christian leaders with media specialists and academic theologians, involving partnerships with prominent university theology faculties, to help develop the Church’s voice in public. This will include developing and supporting a network of emerging younger communicators, giving both training and a platform for their contribution.
  3. Research: The Centre will conduct dedicated theological research into the changing nature of culture and communication and how the church can better communicate its transformative message in the contemporary world.”
