In a tribute to the former Bishop of Gloucester, Michael Perham, who died on April 17th, Sarum College Principal James Woodward said:
“Bishop Michael was a great friend and encourager of Sarum College and our life of learning. He brought his theological and liturgical wisdom into our teaching and was a regular contributor to our MA work.
I appreciated his guidance during the early part of my time here in 2016 and we were delighted to launch his last book The Way of Christ-Likeness here. We remember the way he reflected on his death and faith with candour and without a sense of drama – his courage and pragmatism were inspiring.
We join our thoughts and prayers with many across the community in thanksgiving for a faithful life well lived and offer our sympathy to Alison and his family.
May he rest in peace.”
