Coming Home - December 2021 update


This blog is written by a member of the independent Commission. These views do not necessarily represent the views of the Archbishops' or the Church of England.

In December we heard the very good news that Reverend Lynne Cullens, rector of Stockport, has been appointed Bishop of Barking in the Diocese of Chelmsford.

Lynne is the Chair of National Estates Churches Network. She served on the Archbishops’ Commission for Housing and Community, and now serves on the Housing and Community Advisory board. We are delighted at her appointment. She has been appointed to an area of great social need, and being in Chelmsford will be able to work even more effectively with Bishop Guli, the lead bishop for housing.
