Bishop of Oxford becomes a President of the College

The Right Reverend John Pritchard joined nearly 200 worshippers to preach at the 2010 Patronal Festival Evensong..

Making his first visit to the College, Bishop John found himself among old friends.

He took as the theme for his address the words of Barnabas and Paul in Acts 14.15,
‘Turn from these worthless things to the living God!’

After Evensong in the marquee (too many people attend this occasion to fit into the Chapel) the furniture was hastily re-arranged despite the rain and the Bishop took tea with Residents and friends.

He was so delighted by what he found that he readily agreed to join the ranks of the Presidents of the College – public figures from the Church and beyond who are committed to being ambassadors for the College.
