Official Announcement: Mr David White

1 February 2021

The Chief Operating Officer of the Anglican Consultative Council, David White, is stepping down with immediate effect. The move comes as part of an ongoing restructuring of the Anglican Consultative Council, which was announced earlier this month.

The Vice Chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, Canon Maggie Swinson, is leading the Trustees’ sub-group overseeing the re-organisation. She said: “The Secretary General and Trustees would like to take this opportunity to thank David for all he has done for the Anglican Communion during nearly four years of dedicated service. The Anglican Consultative Council wishes David all the very best for the future and I echo those best wishes”.

David White commented: “It has been my great privilege to serve the Communion over nearly four years and to have engaged with colleagues and partners across the world whose ministries are truly inspiring and a blessing to those that they serve. My prayers for the global communion and all who serve within it will continue.”
