Obituary on Radio 4 for the Rt Rev Derek Rawcliffe

People might be interested in hearing Radio 4’s take on Derek Rawcliffe, former Bishop of this diocese.

There is an obituary on Last Words. There’s a segment on George Shearing first and then the bit about Bishop Derek begins at 7′ 55”


  1. Cool. I gather that Rt Rev Derek wasn’t exactly pro-LGBT, but the fact that someone who ordained, supported (and married ;-)) conservative evangementalists is also part of the same wikipedia page as +Gene Robinson ( ) seems to me weirdly suggestive of the whole ‘Focus of Unity’ thing.
    Appropriate that one of the first gay accepting pontiffs was a Pope ‘Urban’ too! 🙂
