Philip Lovegrove resigns

“In the light of recent events surrounding the appointment of a new Dean of St Albans”, Philip Lovegrove, who has been chairman of the St Albans Diocesan Board of Finance since 1970, has resigned from that post, and also as an Honorary Lay Canon of the Cathedral and Abbey Church of Saint Alban, which he became in 1998. He remains an elected member of the General Synod from St Albans diocese.

The Bishop of St Albans has issued a statement which can be read in full on the diocesan website.

I have been priveleged to hear Philip speak at St Luke’s, Watford and at Diocesan Synod. In my humble opinion Philip has been utterly oustanding and, amazingly, has been able to make the nuts and bolts of financing the Diocese of St Albans interesting (“When it comes to giving, the Angican church stops at nothing”), almost comprehensible and, more importantly, a testimony to how God is working today.

I am so sad Philip has resigned but IMHO he must have had good reason.

Philip, thank you for all you have been and done; God speed in all you do next.

Please pray for us.
