Stephen Cottrell

Archbishop of York Designate

Welcome to the website for the next Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell. This website will be launched at the same time as the Confirmation of Election Service on Thursday 9 July 2020 when he will officially take up the role as Archbishop.

The service will be broadcast entirely via video conference due to the Coronavirus restrictions. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revd Justin Welby, has granted special permission for the virtual service to take place.

The service, which had been due to take place in York Minster, will be in two parts: a legal ceremony with readings, prayers and music; and a film marking the first day of the 98th Archbishop of York’s ministry.

During this time, COVID 19 information for clergy and church officers is available from the Church of England website and is updated regularly.
