New Dean for St Paul’s

New Dean for St Paul’s

The Dean of Durham Cathedral has been appointed the new Dean of St Paul’s, London.  The Very Revd Andrew Tremlett’s appointment was announced on Wednesday, 30 March.

The current Dean of St Paul’s, the Very Revd Dr David Ison will retire in September after a decade in the office.

Speaking of his appointment, Tremlett said, “I am delighted to be appointed as Dean of St Paul’s, following David Ison’s faithful tenure over the past decade. I’m keenly aware that I join the team at St Paul’s at a pivotal time with both immediate and systemic challenges.

“I hope to be able to draw on my experience at other great centres of worship – Westminster Abbey and Durham Cathedral – both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, helping to rebuild life at St Paul’s as the global economy reopens. An international outlook is essential for me and my faith has been deepened through my engagement with the Missions to Seafarers around the world, as well as a keen interest in inter-faith dialogue.

“The Cathedral also has an important role to play in supporting the Diocese of London’s vision for every Londoner to encounter the love of God in Christ. I am looking forward to working with colleagues and across the Capital’s diverse churches to reach out to Londoners and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.”

The new Dean previously served in London Diocese as the Rector of St Margaret’s Church, Westminster Abbey from 2010 until 2016.
