Bishop of Islington

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bishop of Islington is an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of London, in the Province of Canterbury, England.[1][2]

The title takes its name after Islington, an inner-city district of London, and the first suffragan bishop, who lived at Clapton Common,[3] was simultaneously Rector of St Andrew Undershaft.[4] Turner received responsibility for North London, which had hitherto been under the Bishops of Bedford and then of Stepney.[5] Towards the end of his life, Turner slowly handed over his responsibilities due to ill health, but retained his See until death; between 1923 and 2015, the title remained in abeyance.[1]

It was reported in 2015 that Richard Chartres, Bishop of London, had proposed to take the see out of abeyance for the appointment of a national "bishop for church plants",[6][7] and this was confirmed on 1 May 2015.[8] Ric Thorpe became Bishop of Islington from his consecration on 29 September.[9]
