First published 12th July 2018

The Rt Revd Vivienne Faull was consecrated as the 56th Bishop of Bristol by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revd Justin Welby, in a service at St Paul's Cathedral, London, on 3 June.

She was presented to the Archbishop by David Tunley, Revd Beverley Charles and the Archbishop of York, the Most Revd John Sentamu.

The service saw her make the Declaration of Assent before a cathedral filled with friends and colleagues, both from York Minster and the Diocese of Bristol. Following her declaration, she was given a Bible and anointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Bishop Viv will begin her public ministry in Bristol in the autumn, following her move to the Diocese from York over the summer. There will be a service of welcome at Bristol Cathedral later in the year.
