Revd Dr Will Lamb (Balliol 1988) installed as vicar of University Church

Monday 15 May

Revd Dr Will Lamb (Balliol 1988) has been installed as the vicar of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin.

At a ceremony led by the Bishop of Oxford and attended by 300 guests, including the Vice-Chancellor of the University, the new vicar - who worshipped at the church while he was an undergraduate at Balliol - was presented with an ancient parish key as a symbol of his new responsibilities. Previously Vice-Principal of Westcott House in Cambridge, he said: ‘I am delighted to be joining the University Church and I hope that the Church continues to flourish as a centre of theological exploration, thoughtful preaching and radical hospitality.’
