Statement by the Chapter of St Albans Cathedral
Monday 20th March 2017
Dean Jeffrey is a highly respected and much loved leader of our flourishing and inclusive Cathedral, the oldest site of Christian worship in Britain.
We are aware that Jeffrey has been under consideration for the position of Bishop of Llandaff. The fact that it appears Jeffrey's sexuality and civil partnership have been used against him in the selection process is wholly wrong and it is only right that the bishops in Wales review the process before making an appointment.
Our prayers are with the people of the Diocese of Llandaff, the bishops in Wales and with Jeffrey.
