Bishop of Beverley

Not to be confused with now defunct title, relating to the Catholic Diocese of Beverley

The Bishop of Beverley is a Church of England suffragan bishop. The title takes its name after the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.[1]

The suffragran bishop was originally to assist the Archbishop of York in overseeing the Diocese of York, but after 1923 the position fell into abeyance. The title was revived in 1994 as a Provincial Episcopal Visitor for the Province of York. The bishop has responsibility for those parishes in 9 dioceses of the province who cannot in good conscience accept the sacramental ministry of bishops who have participated in the ordination of women. As of 2014, three of the twelve dioceses in the northern province provide a different suffragan bishop to such parishes in their diocese: in the Diocese of Leeds the Bishop of Pontefract and in Blackburn and Carlisle the Bishop of Burnley.[2]

On 29 August 2012, the appointment of Glyn Webster as Bishop of Beverley was announced.[3] He was duly consecrated on 25 January 2013.
