Sarah Mullally, St Augustine’s alumna has been nominated as the Bishop of London

We are delighted that Sarah Mullally, the bishop of Credition, and St Augustine’s alumna (SEITE) has been nominated as the 133rd Bishop of London.

Sarah was ordained as a deacon in 2001 after theological training at St Augustine’s (formerly the South East Institute of Theological Education). Before becoming a priest, Mullally worked as a nurse in NHS hospitals in the capital, including St Thomas’s and the Royal Marsden, and became chief nursing officer in 1999. She was ordained as a priest in 2001. In 2005, she was made a dame in recognition of her services to nursing.

Mullally said: “It is a great honour to be nominated to the See of London. Having lived and worked in London for over 32 years, the thought of returning here is about returning home".
