His installation took place on Sunday 28 September at a special evensong service.
“It is a great honour to be invited to join the Cathedral community as its Canon Theologian. I will be working with the Dean and members of the Chapter in encouraging fresh theological conversation and thinking about the role of the Cathedral in the city of Gloucester and the Diocese of Gloucester. I am confident that representing Sarum College and its strong educational reputation will become a significant asset for this appointment.”
The role of Canon Theologian is an honorary one and so James continues at Sarum whilst developing his links with the Cathedral.
