Welcome to the new Bishop of Chester

The Rt Rev. Mark Tanner has been named by Downing Street as the new Bishop of Chester, succeeding the Rt Rev. Dr Peter Forster who retired in September 2019. Bishop Mark is currently the Bishop of Berwick in the Diocese of Newcastle. He said, “It will be hard to say goodbye to the North East, “however, Lindsay and I are really excited to return to Chester where I was ordained, and both of our children were born.”
