The Revd Dr Elizabeth Thomson has been appointed as Rector and Provost of St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee, in the Diocese of Brechin in the Scottish Episcopal Church.

Written on 11/04/2021

Elizabeth joined Derby Cathedral in 2014 as Canon Missioner and was appointed Sub-Dean in 2018.

The Dean of Derby, the Very Revd Dr Peter Robinson, said: “We are delighted that Elizabeth has been selected as the new Provost of Dundee and she leaves with our thanksgiving to God for her seven years as our Canon Missioner. Elizabeth will be much missed here in Derby. I know that Elizabeth will in the years to come enrich the city of Dundee and the Diocese of Brechin with her many gifts, not least her creativity, capacity for outreach and pastoral insight. Our greetings and prayers to all in the Scottish Episcopal Church who will undoubtedly enjoy Elizabeth’s ministry in the years to come.”

Elizabeth said: “It has been a privilege to be here for seven years, working with excellent colleagues in the Cathedral and the Diocese and learning so much from the whole Cathedral community. I am looking forward to new challenges in Dundee but I will be sad to say goodbye to Derby Cathedral.”

Elizabeth’s last service at Derby Cathedral will be the Cathedral Eucharist on Sunday 6th June 2021. She will be installed in a special service in St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee, on Saturday 19th June.
