An Oxford graduate and doctor of philosophy has been selected as the new Provost of St Paul’s Cathedral in Dundee.

Revd Canon Dr Elizabeth Thomson, who is currently sub-dean and canon missioner of Derby Cathedral, has been announced by Bishop Andrew Swift and the vestry of St Paul’s Cathedral as their next Provost.

Elizabeth, who was first ordained as a minister in 2003, previously taught English in Edinburgh and Somerset.

She said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed Rector and Provost of St Paul’s.

“I am very much looking forward to meeting the Cathedral’s congregation and community, working with new colleagues in the Diocese of Brechin, and engaging with all those connected with the Cathedral in Dundee.

I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed Rector and Provost of St Paul’s.

“There is no need to say that the past year has been difficult for everyone. It has meant re-imagining how we live and how we worship.

“I hope we will be able to draw on what we have learned and take it with us, so that as we are able to gather again we can also serve our community in new ways. My hope and prayer is that the life of the Cathedral will flourish and that its roots in love and service will be strengthened.”

“She will be coming to Dundee as, hopefully, the pandemic begins to have less impact on church and city—the opportunities that this time will present are an exciting time for this new ministry to begin.”
