A Statement from the Leadership [Council] of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford

Posted by Kendall Harmon

From here:
Staff and students at Wycliffe were told last week that Principal Richard Turnbull is to take a leave of absence from the Hall. The Council wishes to make it clear that the Principal has not been dismissed. The Council and Richard are now in ongoing discussions over his future role at Wycliffe, with Vice-Principal Simon Vibert assuming the position of Acting Principal. We have every confidence in Simon, and in the rest of the staff, to ensure continuity and the efficient functioning of the Hall during this time.

The outcome of the discussions with Richard will be communicated to staff and students in due course. However, our overriding priority is to ensure Wycliffe remains unequivocally committed to equipping men and women as leaders, preachers, church planters and evangelists in the mission of proclaiming and living the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, with a deeply biblical understanding of the nature of the Kingdom of God.

Kendall, the hyperlink seems to lead to something from the diocese of San Diego.  As they say in Private Eye, shurely shome mishtake?

Peter Ould has a link to controversy from 2007: five years ago. I can’t help but think that this is related to the present situation.
