Bob Latham

Fr Bob was ordained priest in June 2019, after three years training and formation at Ripon College Cuddesdon, and a further year as deacon in the Fromeside Benefice. Prior to training, Bob was a member of the Bristol Cathedral community, where he served as Head Server.


Bob has a keen interest in Christian character formation - nurturing both the life of the individual and the community. He is inspired and influenced by the Benedictine tradition where all of life is seen as a balanced offering of prayer. He took the name ‘Robert Benedict’ upon ordination as deacon.


Bob is as much at home in wellies and tweed as he is in a cassock and cotta, with a love of countryside, plants and gardens, rooted in his former life as a Landscape Designer.
