8:56am Friday 4th May 2012 in Ryedale news
The Bishop of Whitby, Dr Martin Warner, has been named as the new Bishop of Chichester in south-east England.
Dr Warner, 53, pictured, who has been the Bishop of Whitby in the diocese of York since 2010, succeeds the Rt Rev John Hind who retired last month.
Dr Warner said: “It is a daunting and exciting challenge to be asked to serve the people of Sussex as the next Bishop of Chichester.
“I look forward very much to learning more about the mission in which we shall be engaging together, though it will be a big wrench leaving the North East so soon.”
