Bishop Anne is currently the Bishop of Aston, and for 16 months was the Acting Bishop of Church of England Birmingham.

Anne brings a wealth of ministerial, ecumenical, multi-cultural, inter-faith, educational and managerial experience to help us consolidate Queen’s as a brand leader in theological education and formation in discipleship and ministries.

The Queen’s Foundation offers a truly vibrant Gospel-focused context for learning, research and ministry formation. It has a diverse range of students and programmes reflecting the wonderful diversity of the region and those drawn from far and wide, including Queen’s international community. I am thrilled to have been invited to take up the role of Principal at this exciting time of potential and further development of the unique offer that Queen’s brings. I look forward to playing my part in enabling this distinctive centre of theology and training at the heart of England to equip the churches in England, and global partners, for mission and ministry in today’s world.
