The Revd Earl Storey Appointed as New Editor of ‘The Church of Ireland Gazette’
The Church of Ireland Gazette is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Editor, the Revd Earl Storey, who will be taking up the appointment on 1 June as successor to the Revd Canon Ian Ellis who is stepping down from his sixteen–year tenure with the Gazette.
The Revd Earl Storey was ordained in 1982 and has served as Rector in parishes in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. With over 30 years’ experience, including communications and publishing, he will bring a breadth of experience to the Gazette.
The newly appointed Editor will not only be able to build on the legacy of the Gazette, but will also be able to bring his unique combination of communications skills and experience of wider church matters to the role. He will be working closely with a new Editorial Advisory Committee which is tasked with supporting the Editor in developing a fresh vision for a vibrant modern journal, designed to appeal to readers of all ages and interests.
The Chairman of Church of Ireland Press Ltd, the Revd Canon John R Auchmuty, said: “I am delighted to welcome the Revd Earl Storey as the new Editor of the Gazette. He brings many personal, professional, and spiritual gifts along with immense experience of our church in both jurisdictions to the Gazette as Editor.
“The Gazette has an important role to keep our church family connected one to another and now needs to explore new ways to provide support, blessing and encouragement to its current readers and new subscribers through its pages. The Revd Earl Storey brings both a fresh vision and enthusiasm to the Gazette and I wish him God’s richest blessing in his work.”
