Jonathan Michael Goodall SSC (born 1961) is an Anglican bishop. Since 2013, he has been the Bishop of Ebbsfleet, a suffragan bishop who is the provincial episcopal visitor for western half of the Province of Canterbury in the Church of England. He is an Anglo-Catholic and promotes a traditional catholic understanding of ordination to the priesthood and episcopate — i.e. he rejects the orders of women who are priests or bishops.

Early life

Goodall was born in 1961 in Yorkshire, England.[2][3] He trained for ordination at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.[4]

Ordained ministry

He served his title in the Bicester Team Ministry from 1989 to 1992; in the latter two years he was also assistant chaplain at HMP Bullingdon. He was a minor canon and sacrist of Westminster Abbey from 1992 to 1998, after which he served as research assistant and chaplain to the Bishops of Gibraltar until 2005. From 2005 until his ordination and consecration to the episcopate he was chaplain and ecumencial secretary to the Archbishops of Canterbury.[5]

Episcopal ministry

On 2 August 2013, Goodall was announced as the next Bishop of Ebbsfleet, the provincial episcopal visitor (PEV) for the Province of Canterbury.[4] On 25 September 2013, he was consecrated a bishop by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, during a service at Westminster Abbey.[4][6]

Goodall is a member of the Council of Bishops of The Society.[7]

Personal life

Goodall is married to Sarah.[4] Together, they have two children; Thomas (born 1989) and Anna-Mary (born 1994).[3]
