The Rev. Tim Wambunya will succeed the Rev Canon David Williams, who returns to the UK. A graduate of Oak Hill College, Mr. Wambunya has served in the parish ministry of the Church of England for the past ten years and is chairman of the Kenya Church Association UK.

A native of Kenya, he has served as chairman of the African Institute for Contemporary Mission and Research, a study centre in Western Kenya, is a panel member of the Church of England’s “Partners in World Mission and a board member of Crosslinks.

Under the leadership of Canon Williams since 2000, Carlile College has seen a growth in the number of students in training and the introduction of a special programme for the training of Sudanese clergy, exiled by the war in South Sudan, along with expanded distance learning programmes. Located in Kibera, one of the world’s largest slum communities on the outskirts of Nairobi, Carlile College also has an extensive urban ministry training programme, preparing ministers to serve the fast growing urban populations of Africa.

Mr. Wambunya will be the first African principal for the college.
