THE Dean of St Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney, the Very Revd Phillip Jensen, has announced that he will resign at the end of the year.

Dean Jensen, who is 70 next year, will take up a position with a new company, Two Ways Ministries, based at Moore Theological College, Sydney. The company's objective is to "recruit and train the next generation in preaching the gospel by teaching the Bible", Dean Jensen wrote in a blog post.

Dean Jensen, the brother of the former Archbishop of Sydney, Dr Peter Jensen, took up his appointment as Dean in 2003. His sermon at his installation caused controversy when he said that all religions could not be right. He said that, if the religions of Muslims, Hindus, and Jews were wrong, then they were the "deceits of Satan".

In 2008, when Pope Benedict XVI visited Sydney for World Youth Day, Dean Jensen wrote a newspaper column criticising the Roman Catholic Church.
