THE Synod said farewell to Shaun Farrell, chief executive of the Pen­sions Board. He had “served with rare distinction”, the Archbishop of York, Dr Sentamu, said.

The Revd David Williams, Clerk to the Synod, was also moving on. It had not all been plain sailing, but Mr Williams had “persevered in Christ”. He had been much valued.

The Bishop of Winchester, the Rt Revd Michael Scott-Joynt, was praised by the Archbishop of Canterbury for his contribution to constitutional issues, and for the lead he had taken in the House of Lords. He had shown there “clarity, honesty, and bravery”.
