Changes at Lambeth Palace

From here:

Things are changing - including a jogging Archbishop.
The Most Rev Justin Welby, has revived the position of “Bishop at Lambeth” which fell into disuse under his predecessor Lord Williams, appointing the Rt Reverend Nigel Stock, the current Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich, to the role.

At the same time Lambeth Palace announced that the Archbishop’s most senior official, his chief of staff, Chris Smith, is leaving “to pursue other interests.”

His job is being split with Kay Brock, a former senior aide to the Queen, taking on the title while Bishop Stock will look after a range of internal church matters.

The announcement is the first of what is expected to be a series of changes as the Archbishop takes the axe to what has been dubbed the “court” at Lambeth Palace.
