It is with heavy hearts we post the news about the passing of Bishop John Taylor, on Wednesday 1st June. We rejoice in the knowledge that he is now with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus - Whom Bishop John loved and served whole-heartedly.

Bishop John Taylor relaxes with his wife, Linda at the CMJ conference last year.

It is with great sadness we inform all CMJ supporters and friends that our Patron, Bishop John Taylor, died peacefully late yesterday evening at the Hospice of St Francis.

All who knew John will testify to his immense faith, kindness and love. He was a great Biblical scholar, teacher and pastor, and served the Church with distinction in many roles including being Bishop of St Albans, from 1980-1995. We all at CMJ felt honoured and greatly encouraged to have him serve us as our President, and later as our Patron.

We remember John’s widow Linda and his wider family at this time. We declare the hope and joy of the resurrection while grieving his death.

Rev Alex Jacob CMJ UK CEO
