Photograph of James Newcome

Although he was born and brought up in the South of England, James Newcome has now worked in the North West for more than twenty years. After sometime as Director of Ministry and Residentiary Canon in Chester Diocese he became Bishop of Penrith, and for the last ten years has been Bishop of Carlisle. Carlisle Diocese has become the first ‘ecumenical county’, where Anglicans are working closely with Methodists and the United Reformed Church in Mission Communities whose purpose is to ‘grow disciples of all ages.’ James Newcome is married with four grown up children, and is co-chairman of the Rose Castle Foundation.
