Dr David Walker, Bishop of Manchester
It’s an amazing privilege for me to be the bishop of the diocese in which I was born and brought up, and to be able to offer something back to the community that gave me my faith, my core values and many of the skills that have helped me through my life.
Manchester is an exciting place to live: with thriving and vibrant communities and with a proud history of innovation. There are also many challenges: almost half of our parishes fall within the most deprived 10% in England, and they will be amongst the hardest hit by the pandemic.
It is this mix of challenge and opportunity that makes Manchester such an exciting place to live and work. It is also why I am so passionate about leading the Church of England on the path of growing, nurturing and serving its population.
