Facing the canon with bishop david pytches

George Edward David Pytches (born 9 January 1931) is a bishop of the Anglican Communion and the former Bishop of Chile, Bolivia & Peru. Pytches was also vicar of St Andrew's, in Chorleywood England. He is the author of many books, including Come Holy Spirit and his autobiography, Living at the Edge. He is the founder of the New Wine conferences with his wife Mary, who is also an author in the field of Christian counselling.


He supported the Soul Survivor movement in England during its early days and throughout its history; for example, the Soul in the City event was supported by a large donation received from a New Wine conference only days before.

Pytches, along with Bishop C. FitzSimons Allison and four others, participated in the consecration in 2000, in Singapore, of two bishops opposed to the blessing of same-sex unions by the Episcopal Church USA.

Pytches and his wife gave the leadership of New Wine over to John and Anne Coles in 2001, but still visit the conferences every year and continue to speak there.

The appointment of his son-in-law, the Reverend Canon Dr Christopher Cocksworth, as the 9th Bishop of Coventry and youngest serving diocesan bishop in the Church of England, was announced in March 2008.
