Buy a Bishop

As part of their role as Bishops, Bishop Martin and Bishop Mike are always very pleased to visit parishes and groups at any time. But have you ever wanted a Bishop to cook you a pizza, mow your lawn, or teach you to dance? 

This Lent you can bid to buy an hour of a Bishop's time to do something you've never thought of before. It's not just about the money - we are also looking for the most creative ideas! 

Tell us who you are, what you'd like a Bishop to do and why, and of course, how much you're willing to pay. We're looking for bids from individuals as well as groups. The Bishops will decide on the winning ideas based on creativity and feasibility, and expect to respond during Lent as bids come in.

There are also Bishop-branded products to be auctioned. 

Send us your bids for:

  • a hand-turned wooden candlestick from Bishop Martin
  • a bottle of Mendlesham blackberry gin
  • a signature cake baked by Bishop Mike

For this auction, the highest bids will win.

Closing date for the auction is midnight on Easter Monday 10 April.
