About Rt Revd John Pritchard, former Bishop of Oxford:

John Pritchard retired as Bishop of Oxford in 2014. He now lives in Richmond, North Yorks where he is an Assistant Bishop. Prior to that he has been Bishop of Jarrow, Archdeacon of Canterbury and Warden of Cranmer Hall, Durham. His only ambition was to be a vicar, which he was in Taunton for eight happy years.

When Bishop of Oxford he was also Lead Bishop on Education, and chaired SPCK. He continues to speak, teach, write and lead retreats and pilgrimages in this country and abroad as long as the invitations keep coming!

He has a special interest in making the Christian faith accessible, interesting and credible in a sceptical culture, and in offering teaching and resources on contemporary spirituality. He has written over 20 books to meet those interests, including books of intercessions, the Life and Work of a Priest, and apologetics, discipleship, losing touch with God and, most recently (Jan 2022) Twenty Questions Jesus Asked. He remains fascinated by Jesus and the mystery of God. He reads a lot, walks, cooks and watches TV and live sport, as well as enjoying family, music and the arts.
