Bishop Roy Williamson

The Rt Revd Roy Williamson, who served as an Honorary Assistant Bishop in  Southwell & Nottingham since 1998, died peacefully at his home in Beeston during the early hours of Tuesday (17th September).

Bishop Roy had long standing associations with this diocese prior to retiring here; he  served his first incumbency as Vicar of Hyson Green (1966-72), then as Vicar of St. Ann with Emmanuel (1972-76) and subsequently as Vicar of St. Michael and All Angels, Bramcote (1976-79).

In 1978 Bishop Roy was appointed as the Archdeacon of Nottingham, continuing to bring his energy and vision for Christ’s mission to the wider life of the diocese.  In 1984, he was consecrated as the Bishop of Bradford (1984-91) and was later translated to be Bishop of Southwark (1991-98).

Born in 1932, he trained for the priesthood at Oak Hill theological college.  He was ordained as deacon (1963) and priest (1964) in the Diocese of Chichester, where he served his curacy.  He married Anne in 1956, who sadly died in 2004.  In retirement Roy was not only active in ministry but continued to offer great encouragement and friendship to many across this diocese. 

He leaves five children: Stephen, Gillian, Jonathan, Andrew and Katie.

Four amazing days of oneLIFE
Churches across Southwell & Nottingham shared the good news of Jesus with the people in their communities during the oneLIFE mission that was headed up by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, and supported by a dozen bishops from the Northern Province.
Churches organised more than 450 events and activities as part of the mission and invited people along, and they came – some of the venues were packed out. In the city of Nottingham, in towns and in villages, new contacts and friendships were made and new steps in faith taken.
Events included film shows, picnics, barbecues, school visits, fashion shows, Messy Church, prayer walks, storytelling, concerts featuring Christian rappers, a magic show and sports events.

  1. Can you put a thank you in the next pew sheet to Tristan Jones and David boot for staying with me after boys brigade on Monday to wait for the paramedics when I had a gallstone attack

    • Dear Adam,
      I’ve just taken over sorting out the web pages and have noticed your comment/request.
      I’m sorry if it hasn’t been replied to previously.
      Would you like me to get this in the next pew sheet as a belated thanks to David and Tristan?
      Best wishes,
