Dean of Jersey to leave the island in February

The Dean of Jersey, The Very Reverend Robert Key, is stepping down from the role.

The island's head of the Anglican church will leave at the end of February 2017, to become part of the Archbishops’ Evangelism Task Group.

He will also be part of the team working on a new strategy for mission and evangelism.

While I’m sorry that Bob and Daphne will be leaving our immediate fellowship, I’m delighted that his particular gifts in evangelism will continue to be available both in the wider life of our Church in the UK and within the Diocese of Bath & Wells. During his time in Jersey, he has been instrumental in helping to build the confidence of our Church, both in its witness and service of the wider community. We are all deeply grateful for all that Bob and Daphne have given so generously of themselves in the support and encouragement of others.

– The Rt Revd Trevor Willmott, Bishop of Dover
