About the Rt Revd Bishop Olivia Graham

Bishop Olivia became the Diocese of Oxford’s first female bishop when she was consecrated in November 2019. She began her career in teaching and international development, including a period working for Oxfam in Somalia. Ordained in 1997, she has since served in the Diocese of Oxford, in Garsington, Princes Risborough, and Burnham before she became the Archdeacon of Berkshire in 2013.

Bishop Olivia is passionate about social justice and the interface the Church has with the wider world. In June 2019 she accompanied other faith leaders calling for Government action on climate change and took part in a Mass Lobby of Parliament. She has also led the work on Flourishing in Ministry, a set of resources and a leadership approach that supports clergy to develop a healthy rhythm of prayer, work and rest.
