Bishop Lee has been a passionate and committed Bishop of Swindon for the last 18 years and has been a great support to our church during that period. We are sad to announce that his time as Bishop will come to an end at the end of April and we wish him a very happy retirement.

He has come through cancer and two serious falls from his bicycle in that time and has twice cycled the length of Great Britain. It was great to welcome him to St John’s last November.

He takes a personal interest in the individual churches in his care. Everyone will want to know about the future. We understand that he will be replaced as Bishop as soon as his successor can be appointed.
