The Diocese of Argyll & The Isles has chosen a new Bishop in an online election.
The Rev Canon Dr Keith Riglin was selected by the Electoral Synod from a shortlist of three candidates, and will fill the vacancy brought about by the translation of the Rt Rev Kevin Pearson to the Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway last year.
The successful outcome also means that the College of Bishops will now have a full complement of seven Bishops for the first time since 2016.
The Bishop-elect is Vice Dean and Chaplain at King’s College London, where he is also a Visiting Lecturer in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies. He also serves as Assistant Priest at St Anne’s Church, Soho and as an Authorised Presbyter at Wesley’s Chapel, London.
The two other candidates were the Very Rev Margi Campbell, Provost of St John’s Cathedral in Oban, and the Rev David Railton, Rector of Holy Trinity Church in Dunoon and St Paul’s, Rothesay.
