Emma Ineson to become Bishop of Penrith

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Trinity College principal, Rev Dr Emma Ineson, as Bishop of Penrith in the Diocese of Carlisle. Emma’s service of consecration will be in York Minster in February 2019, and she will take up her new appointment shortly before Easter.

The college will miss Emma hugely. She has brought warmth and generosity of spirit to her role and has overseen a community of learning that is focused and fun.

She looks forward to her new role with eager anticipation: ‘I will be very sad to leave Trinity. It is a wonderful college. I have loved being here, as a student in the late 90s, as a Council member, on the faculty for seven years, and then as principal for what will have been five years. However, I look forward to being involved in diocesan leadership and rural mission in a beautiful part of the country, and in a diocese that is serious about lay ministry, fresh expressions, missional discipleship and ecumenical relationships.’

In order to ensure a seamless transition, the College Council will be starting the recruitment process for a new principal straight away. We anticipate the new principal starting early in 2019.

Do pray for Emma and her husband, Mat, as they plan for their move to the Lake District and pray too for the college as we make a new appointment. This is a great college of which to be principal, with strong kingdom vision and values, and a flourishing culture due to the commitment of excellent colleagues and a fantastic community of students.

–Tony Miles, Chair of Council
