We were honoured to welcome the new Bishop of Doncaster, Revd Canon Sophie Jelley, to the academy today following the announcement by Downing Street this morning of her appointment to the role.
As part of her first day in the post she met with students from the academy and answered their questions in front of tv cameras from Look North!
She then went on to visit the parish of Bentley, affected by the recent floods, before going on to lunch with civic, business and faith leaders at Doncaster Minster. She will then visit Rotherham Minster and the diocese’s central administrative office Church House. Sophie’s first day in the diocese will end with Evening Prayer at Sheffield Cathedral at 17.00.
