New Bishop of Woolwich is ‘pastoral and joyful’ former student

The college community is delighted to hear that Revd Prebendary Dr Woyin Karowei Dorgu is to be the new Bishop of Woolwich.

Karwoei trained at Oak Hill from 1993-95 and was a curate at St Mark’s, Tollington Park, from 1995-98. He served as curate at St John the Evangelist, Upper Holloway, for two years before becoming its vicar in 2000, where he has been ever since.

For many years, Karowei has been an Oak Hill placement supervisor. Paul Woodbridge, Director of College Placements, says, ‘All the students who have been placed at St John the Evangelist speak warmly about him, how pastoral and approachable he is, as well as joyful. Everyone speaks of how much they have learned from him, in his love for his congregation, his pastoral approach to people, and the way he leads services and preaches.’

Karowei is married to Mosun, and they had two sons, Timi and Josh. Tragically, Josh died suddenly at the age of 18 in January 2015. Karowei will be consecrated Bishop of Woolwich in Southwark Cathedral on 17 March 2017.
