The Revd Canon Dr Chigor Chike to be next Archdeacon of Lewisham & Greenwich

With the Venerable Alastair Cutting being announced as the new Bishop of Woolwich, The Revd Canon Dr Chigor Chike has also been announced as the next Archdeacon of Lewisham & Greenwich.

The Bishop of Southwark, The Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, said of the appointment: “Chigor is a priest with a pastoral heart, solid parish experience in East London, and great theological insight. He has a passion for social justice and, God willing, his enormous gifts will be a great blessing both to the archdeaconry and wider Diocese.”

Chigor has served as the Vicar of Emmanuel Church in Forest Gate, East London, for fourteen years. It is hoped he will come into post and begin his new ministry in Autumn 2024.

As a St. Michael’s family let us pray for Chigor and his family.
