New Canon Missioner for Birmingham Cathedral

The Reverend Canon Andy Delmege has been appointed to the Residentiary Canonry in Birmingham Cathedral. Andy is currently Vicar of St Bede’s, Brandwood, and Urban Estates Missioner within Church of England Birmingham. He is Chair of the National Estate Churches Network and part of the Estates Evangelism Task Group. Andy is already a member of Birmingham Cathedral’s College of Canons. He will take up his new role in late July. 

The Dean of Birmingham, the Very Reverend Matt Thompson, welcomed Andy and said: ‘Andy’s work in Urban Mission has been of national significance. His collaborative approach to mission and sharing the Gospel; his deep concern for people, especially the poor and marginalised in our society; and his passion for helping others grow in their faith and the spiritual life are just what we need in our new Canon Missioner. We are so excited by Andy’s appointment and we can’t wait for him to begin his ministry amongst us as soon as we can. We are really looking forward to being able to gather together in the later part of the year to welcome him properly.’
