Guli Francis-Dehqani is the first Suffragan Bishop of Loughborough. She was one of only four BAME Bishops in the Church of England. Born in Iran, her father, Hassan Dehquani-Tafti, was the first Iranian Anglican bishop. Her family fled to Britain in May 1980 when she was 14 years of age, after the assassination of her brother, Bahram.
Bishop Guli’s experiences of persecution in Iran and then her coming to the UK as an immigrant, struggling to ‘fit in’, provides her with a real sense of what it is to be on the margins. It also provides her with a unique perspective, in this very timely presentation on matters of justice, faith and belonging in a fast-changing world.
