The Bishop of Tewkesbury retires after 17 years in the role. The Right Reverend John Went now plans to return to parish ministry and will be licensed as a part time parish priest in Latimer and Flaunden in Buckinghamshire in April.

"During our [reverend and his wife] 17 years in the Diocese of Gloucester it has been our privilege to serve alongside many able colleagues and to make many friends whose friendship we shall continue to value as we move to a new diocese and a new ministry," said bishop Went.
