Bishop Donald in the House of Lords

Bishop Donald in the House of LordsBishop Donald joined the House of Lords in February 2014.

He became one of the 26 bishops in the House, who are seen as representing all faith communities and their wider geographical community and shares, with other bishops, a particular responsibility for being a Church of England spokesperson on prisons and criminal justice, and farming and rural affairs.

Reflected on the role of the Bishop’s in the Lords, Bishop Donald says, “God’s interested in the whole of life. The Kingdom is not just what happens in church, it’s much bigger than that. Bishop’s speak from a politically neutral position to try and bring the principles of Christianity to every area of life.”
