The Bishop of Truro, the Rt Revd Tim Thornton, has been appointed as the new Bishop of Lambeth, and will be stepping down from his role in Cornwall.
Bishop Tim will take up his new post in September, when he moves to the borough of London with his wife, Sian, and their two children, to replace Rt Revd Nigel Stock who is due to retire.
Since his appointment in 2009 Bishop Tim has done a lot for the county, including co-chairing an inquiry into foodbanks which led to the report Feeding Britain.
He was also the president of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association and chair of the Development and Appointments Group, which oversees the leadership development work among senior clergy.
His duties at Lambeth will include supporting the Archbishop of Canterbury's work in the House of Bishops, general Synod and the Archbishop's Council.
He will also be heavily involved in the Lambeth Conference 2020, and take on the role of Bishop to the Forces.
