Bishop of the Diocese of Iran: Vacant

Update on the Bishop in Iran

In January 2016 Bishop Azad Marshall resigned as Bishop in Iran in order to take up a new post as Co-Adjutor Bishop of the Diocese of Raiwind in Pakistan and successor to the present diocesan bishop there. In 2017 the Revd Dr Albert Walters was appointed Vicar-General of Iran. Unfortunately, his visa was not renewed in 2019 and he had to leave the role.

Please pray for the Christians in Iran and show your support for them
