CHURCH IN WALES

A NEW Dean of Llandaff has been announced, after the sudden resignation of its first female Dean last year. He will be installed on 28 February.

The Revd Gerwyn Capon (above), Chaplain to the Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, has been named as the successor to the Very Revd Janet Henderson, who left after two months in the post (News, 17 May).

Announcing the appointment, Dr Morgan said: "Gerwyn will be an excellent dean and parish priest. He has been a great help to me."

Mr Capon, who is 48, said: "I have already received a whole lot of support and encouragement from the cathedral community and many of my fellow clergy in the diocese."

Before ordination, Mr Capon worked in property development, and later was an adviser to the Church Urban Fund.

Late last year, the cathedral confirmed that it had made five lay clerks, a choral scholar, and an assistant organist redundant, as part of a plan to address a deficit of £81,000 (News, 20 December).

An appeal against the redundancies has been rejected, the Incorporated Society of Musicians said this week.
