The Clerk to the General Synod of the Church of England, Dr. Colin Podmore, will leave his post at the end of March, the Secretary General of the Church of England, Mr. William Fittall, reported last week, following Dr. Podmore’s appointment as the new Director of Forward in Faith.
Dr. Podmore “will continue to fulfill the full range of his current responsibilities” until his departure, but “at his request” he will “not play a role in relation to the Women Bishops legislation,” Mr. Fittall said on 13 Oct 2012.
He added that Dr. Podmore’s “outstanding skills and depth of knowledge are going to be greatly missed. If there is any consolation it is that he will still be devoting his notable abilities to the cause of mutual flourishing within the Church of England.”
