Bishop of Whitby

Anglicanism portal

The Bishop of Whitby is an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of York, in the Province of York, England.[1]

The title takes its name after the town of Whitby in North Yorkshire. Today, the Bishop of Whitby oversees the Archdeaconry of Cleveland, and has alternative episcopal oversight in the Diocese of York as a whole for those parishes which do not in conscience accept the ordination of women as priests and bishops.

On 19 October 2012 it was announced that Philip North was to become the next bishop.[2] However, it was announced on 16 December 2012 that North had withdrawn his acceptance of the post.[3]
