The next Bishop of Warrington will be the Venerable Beverley Mason.
She is currently Archdeacon of Richmond and Craven in the Diocese of Leeds.
Beverley Mason will minister alongside Bishop Paul of Liverpool as one of the "chief pastors" of the Liverpool Diocese.
I join the Diocese of Liverpool at a crucial time for church and society. We live in a world full of uncertainties and with acts of violence; many are anxious and fearful, but one where so many are able to dream of a better world, hope for a better future.
Today marks a new era in our Diocese. I am delighted that Archdeacon Bev has responded to the call to serve as the next Bishop of Warrington.
