“I was saddened to learn that Bishop Simon died last Wednesday.
“Simon gave many years of faithful service to this Diocese. He retired to the area in 1994, serving first as an Assistant Bishop and more recently as an Honorary Assistant Bishop. He was a great support particularly to my predecessors, Bishops Michael and Colin, before finally withdrawing from active ministry in 2012.
“Our prayers at this difficult time are with Janet and the family, particularly Frances, our friend and colleague in the Diocesan School of Mission.
“May he rest in peace and rise in glory.”
The Right Reverend Tim Dakin, Bishop of Winchester
The funeral service for the Right Reverend Simon Burrows RIP will be held in the Choir of Winchester Cathedral on 21 August 2015 at 11.00am. There is an open invitation to attend the funeral.
