The Revd Jonathan Sedgwick is to be the new Archdeacon of Southwark in the Diocese of Southwark. Jonathan, who is Rector of St George Martyr with St Alphege and St Jude, has been acting Archdeacon since June when Jane Steen left to become Bishop of Lynn.
The Bishop of Southwark, The Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, said, “I am delighted that the Revd Jonathan Sedgwick has accepted my invitation to be the next Archdeacon of Southwark. Jonathan has ministered in the Diocese of Southwark since 1997 and brings both pastoral wisdom and acumen to this role from his time as an incumbent and a senior civil servant who also ministered in a non-stipendiary capacity before his seven years at St George the Martyr Southwark. His missional focus, care of the clergy and strategic gifts have been very much appreciated by his colleagues while serving for six months as Acting Archdeacon and will equip him well in his future ministry. I commend him to your prayers.”
Jonathan Sedgwick will be installed as the new Archdeacon of Southwark on 15th May 2022 at Southwark Cathedral
