On Sunday 29 April 2012 the Bishop of Chichester, The Right Reverend John Hind, will preach at the Cathedral's 11am Eucharist for the last time in his role as Bishop.

Bishop John is retiring after 11 years as the 102nd Bishop of Chichester.  On the announcement of his retirement Bishop John said:

"It has been a delight and a privilege to serve the Diocese of Chichester for over a decade and I am grateful to colleagues both lay and clergy, who work so faithfully for the Gospel and the good of Sussex.  Although I shall miss the parishes and people of the Diocese very much, as I shall be nearly 67 I think the time is right for a new bishop to take over, and I am looking forward to an opportunity to continue to fulfil my minstry as a priest without the particular responsibilities of leading a diocese."
