The Church of England has issued the following Safeguarding Statement on Christ Church, Oxford. The Church of England’s lead safeguarding bishop, The Rt Rev Jonathan Gibbs, Bishop of Huddersfield, said:
“Now the investigation has concluded and the Dean has been exonerated of these safeguarding allegations, the NST’s involvement has come to an end. I continue to pray for his ministry and the life of the Cathedral and its mission in the diocese and wider Church. As I have said before, the NST has no view about, and is not involved in, the wider issues relating to the College and the Dean at Christ Church, Oxford and this remains the case”.
