Dean of Derby Cathedral

Tuesday 23 August 2016

The Queen has approved the appointment of the Very Revd Dr John Davies as Dean of Wells. Confirmation of the appointment was announced by 10 Downing Street this morning. Dr Davies succeeds the Very Revd John Clarke, who retired at the end of 2015.

The Rt Revd Dr Alastair Redfern, Bishop of Derby, says: “John has done a superb job at Derby, establishing a strong team, masterminding significant investment in the building, including a wonderful redecoration, and making important connections across the city and county. He has established a lively Cathedral with firm foundations. We will miss him enormously – but fully support his acceptance of this new challenge. He goes with our love and prayers.”

Dr Davies says: ‘I will leave Derby Cathedral with real sadness. In six years we have achieved a lot together but the invitation to lead another Cathedral with its own challenges to face was one I could not refuse. I will preside and preach for the last time as Dean of Derby in Derby Cathedral on Tuesday 1st November, All Saints Day, in the evening.’

Dr Davies will be officially installed as Dean of Wells at a special service to be held on Sunday 20 November 2016 at Wells Cathedral.
