Magdalen College – Basil Jellicoe’s alma mater – has appointed the The Revd Dr Angus Ritchie as its Jellicoe Chaplain. His role will be to oversee the development of the link between the College and East London, and act as Senior Member of the Jellicoe Society.

Bishop Miles is a leading figure in BUILD, the city’s community organising alliance, and will be in the UK from 21-28 November on a speaking tour. Other engagements include a keynote address at a conference on urban mission at Holy Trinity Brompton on 25th November.
