Adrian Butcher, the Anglican Communion’s director for communications, plans to step down after three years in the role.
Butcher, who worked for BBC News for 25 years before joining the Anglican Communion Office, took up the post just before the 16th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council. He will leave in May after that body’s 17th meeting.
“It’s been an interesting and challenging time and I believe considerable progress has been made,” he said. “We have refreshed the ACO website, introduced weekly news in French, Spanish, and Portuguese, dramatically increased our video and blog output, and beefed up our social media presence, although there is always more to do.
“It has been a memorable three years. I have had the privilege of attending some extraordinary events and have met many wonderful people all over the world. But I feel the time has come for me to move on to fresh opportunities.”
