Bishop Peter John Lee
Bishop Peter was born and educated in England. He came to South Africa in the mid 1970’s and was appointed the Rector of Christ Church, Addington. In January 1980 he was installed as the Rector of St Luke’s where his ability to teach the word of the Lord was recognised. Bishop Peter’s enthusiasm and understanding for the word was conveyed to eager parishioners keen to attend services throughout the day.
Bishop Peter was appointed The Rector of St Michael and All angels in Alexandra, whilst there he encouraged the parishes’ link with the Church of the Good shepherd in Soweto through the combining of services and food schemes.
Peter formed SATI - the St Luke’s Anglican Lay Training Initiative, by doing so he met the desire to expand on the knowledge, faith and ministry to the many people, craving regular lessons on their Christian journey. Peter has also gone on to write a history of the Diocese of Johannesburg entitled "Compromise and Courage – Anglicans in Johannesburg" as well as "Poor Man, Rich Man: the Priorities of Jesus" and "The Agenda of the Church and Guard her Children: Hope for South Africa Today"
Peter started the Anglican Mission Association, and was appointed Canon Missioner of the Diocese. He worked with Archbishop Desmond Tutu as Canon Missioner of the Anglican diocese of Johannesburg before being elected as bishop of the new Diocese of Christ the King.
Bishop Peter is married to Gill and together they have 3 daughters.
