Clive Hogger returns to parish ministry

The Reverend Clive Hogger, Vicar of All Saints parish in Coventry, is returning to full-time parish ministry having been seconded to the Archdeacons' Team for the past two years.

In his address to Diocesan Synod on 18 June, Bishop Christopher said:

"Clive Hogger worked very closely with Morris Rodham as Assistant Archdeacon and covered much of his work during Morris’ sabbatical in 2018.  Clive has also supported Sue Field since Sue’s arrival in the Diocese in March last year.  Earlier in 2017 Clive worked alongside Sue’s predecessor, John Green, preparing to fill his shoes as Acting Archdeacon Pastor, which he did admirably when the time came. Having served the Diocese with great commitment for these last two years, Clive will be stepping down as Assistant Archdeacon at the end of the month and will return to his parish in Coventry city.

Clive has shown great agility of mind, quickly learning new roles, dazzling Bishop and Diocesan Secretary alike with his newly acquired legal knowledge and great skill at addressing some often very difficult areas of our common life. I am sure you will want to join me in expressing thanks to Clive for the great dedication he has shown to this ministry of service to the Diocese and also our thanks to his wardens and PCCs for their patience and cooperation over these last two years."
