Bishop Christopher J Boyle was born and grew up in Birmingham. He attended Kings College London and was ordained deacon in 1976. He worked in the diocese of Birmingham from 1976 to 2001. His ministry there included as Bishop’s Chaplain, Parish Priest, Area Dean, and Canon of the Cathedral. In 2000 Bishop Christopher was elected Bishop of Northern Malawi, where he has served for the past eight years.
Bishop Christopher is unmarried and brings his many pastoral, spiritual and theological gifts to the Diocese.
Bishop Christopher says “I’m delighted to return to the Midlands to join Bishop Tim in the Diocese of Leicester. I’m looking forward to sharing in his ministry and getting to know the people and places of which I’ve heard so much. The contrast with Malawi could hardly be greater, but it’s a wonderful opportunity to support and encourage the clergy and to be part of strengthening the spiritual life of the Diocese.”
Bishop Christopher’s duties include confirmation, consecrations, ministerial reviews, civic functions as necessary, as well as teaching and preaching throughout the Diocese.
