The Bishop of Exeter, the Rt. Rev. Michael Langish, has announced he will retire from office on 29 June 2013. In a 6 Jan 2013 letter to the diocese, Bishop Langrish said that during the “13 years that I have had the privilege of serving as Bishop of Exeter I have grown to love this county and its people deeply.”
“Although 2012 has been a challenging year, as have many others before it, I hope that I leave the Church of England in Devon in good heart. We have recently seen growth in the number of vocations to authorised ministry, positive indications in terms of the numbers of those who worship with us and cause for optimism in the financial contributions we receive. For all of these, I am enormously grateful for your support and the depth of your commitment to growing God’s Kingdom.”
