The Archbishop of Canterbury has appointed the Rev. Isabelle Hamley as the new chaplain to the archbishop at Lambeth Palace.

Henley is currently tutor in biblical studies at St John’s College, Nottingham and associate priest in the parish of Edwalton and will her new duties in January.

In addition to the usual duties of chaplain, Hamley will develop the archbishop’s priority of prayer and the renewal of religious life, especially through the Community of St Anselm, the residential ecumenical new monastic movement of prayer based at Lambeth Palace.

“I am delighted with the opportunity to join the Lambeth team in supporting the work of the Archbishop. It is a privilege to join such a rich and diverse working environment, bringing my experience in parish, chaplaincy and theological education. I look forward to getting to know all those who work and live at Lambeth and enabling prayer to be the beating heart of our life together.”
