David Eric Court (born 16 October 1958)[1] is a British Anglican bishop. He has been the Bishop suffragan of Grimsby in the Church of England Diocese of Lincoln since 2014.[2]

Early life

Court was born on 16 October 1958 in Norwich, England.[3] He was educated at a comprehensive school in Norwich.[2] He went on to study electrochemistry at the University of Southampton,[2] graduating with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in 1980 and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in 1983.[4] His doctoral thesis was titled "Some electrochemical studies in large molecules",[5] and related to the medicinal opportunities of sugar.[2] He then remained Southampton to undertake teacher training, and completed his Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in 1984.[4]

From 1984 to 1988, Court taught chemistry and physics at Prince William School, a secondary school in Oundle, Northamptonshire.[2][6] Having become a committed Christian while at university, he left teaching and entered Oak Hill Theological College, a conservative evangelical theological college in London.[2] He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in 1991.[4]

Ordained ministry

Court was ordained a deacon in 1991. Court served his title (curacy) in Barton Seagrave and was ordained a priest in 1992; from 1994 to 1997, he served a second curacy in Kinson before moving to become Vicar of Mile Cross, Norwich. He then moved to become Vicar of Cromer in 2003; while remaining in which post, he became Rural Dean of Repps and an honorary canon of Norwich Cathedral in 2010.[4]

Episcopal ministry

On 9 May 2014, it was announced that Court had been appointed Bishop of Grimsby in the Diocese of Lincoln. He was duly consecrated by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury on 25 July 2014 at St Paul's Cathedral, London[2] and installed at Lincoln Cathedral on 27 July 2014.

Between May 2019 and February 2021, during the suspension of the Bishop of Lincoln (Christopher Lowson), Court was served as acting diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Lincoln.[7][8]

Personal life

Court is married to Ann, and they have three children.[2]
