The Rt. Revd. Dr. Robert Innes was consecrated as the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe in July 2014. He and his wife Helen live in Brussels. They have four children – two are married and based in England, and two are students in Scotland. As well as looking after the Church of England’s 42nd and easily most extensive diocese, Robert represents the Archbishop of Canterbury with the Institutions of the European Union.
Before being made Bishop, Robert was Chancellor of the Pro-Cathedral of Holy Trinity, Brussels. He previously worked in parish ministry and theological education in Durham, England, and was educated in Cambridge and Durham. He has published works on theological and psychological ideas of the self, St. Augustine, work and vocation and most recently on responding to the Professional Guidelines for the Conduct of the Clergy. His pre-ordination career was in engineering and business consultancy, working mostly for the firm that is now Accenture. When he is not working or travelling, Robert enjoys walking in the Brussels forests, playing tennis and family celebrations.
