The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr George Carey, has appointed the Revd Andrew Norman as his Assistant Officer for the Anglican Communion and Ecumenism.

Andrew Norman is currently serving as Associate Vicar in the Parish of Christ Church, Clifton in the diocese of Bristol. He studied PPE at Oxford and holds diplomas in French and Management studies. He trained for the ministry at Ridley Hall and holds a theology degree from the University of Cambridge.

Before ordination, he worked briefly in overseas development administration, served on research projects and held a range of management posts, at one stage helping to organise elections in Angola. Following ordination in 1995 he served for five years as assistant chaplain at St Michael’s, Paris.

Mr Norman said “I am very pleased to be bringing experiences of working across many countries and a variety of cultures to support the Archbishop in this vital aspect of his ministry. Although it will be hard to leave Clifton, I am looking forward to the challenges in this unique area of ministry and service.”

He is married to Amanda, a licensed reader, and they have two children.
