We were delighted to learn that the Rt Rev. Dr Gulnar Francis-Dehqani has been elected Vice President of the Conference of European Churches at its recent General Assesmbly. As reported on the CEC website Bishop Francis-Dehqani said, “My priority is to be engaged with others in work around issues with refugees and the movement of people across Europe,”. Coming originally from Iran, since 2017 Bishop Francis-Dehquani serves the Church of England as the Bishop of Loughborough with a particular brief to work with diverse cultures and minority ethnic communities within the Diocese. We would like to extend our congratulations to Bishop Francis-Dehqani and hope to be able to introduce her to the work of the EFECW during her time in office.
