Pictures from announcement day - the next Bishop of Sheffield

31st January 2017

On 31 January 2017 it was announced that the Rt Revd Philip North, current Bishop of Burnley, would be the next Bishop of Sheffield.  The announcement was made at a press conference at the Cathedral Archer Project at 10am.  After a tour of the project and the wider Cathedral, the Bishop then went on to visit the staff at Diocesan Church House, where he had lunch with them.  Following this he went to Rossington All Saints Academy for a Q&A with students before finishing his day back in Sheffield Cathedral for Evensong.  Browse the gallery below for a snapshot of pictures from the day.
