A message from the New Dean of Wakefield - Simon Cowling

The new Dean of Wakefield will ring the bells of Wakefield Cathedral himself on Saturday 29 September 2018 to mark the start of his ministry.

The Revd Canon Simon Cowling will be installed as the third Dean of Wakefield supported by a congregation representing the city, the church and the region - including the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Leeds, the Rt Revd Nick Baines and many friends from his former parishes.

He takes up the post after five years as the Rector of Bolton Abbey and is looking forward to contributing to the renewed sense of confidence in the city. 

Here are Simon's thoughts about his new up and coming role.
