George Clive Handford CMG[1] (born 17 April 1937) was the fourth Anglican Bishop in Cyprus and the Gulf.[2]


Educated at Hatfield College and Queen's College, Edgbaston,[3] he was ordained in 1963 and began his ecclesiastical carer with a curacy in Mansfield. He then began what was to be a long association with the Middle East by becoming a Chaplain in Lebanon before a stint as Dean of St. George's Cathedral, Jerusalem.

Often embroiled in centuries old disputes he clearly stated his own view in a letter to The Times in 1977:
"I am neither pro-Arab nor pro-Jew, I am pro-human[4]"

Returning to England he became successively Vicar of Kneesall, Archdeacon of Nottingham[2] and then in 1990 Suffragan Bishop of Warwick. He was then translated to the Mediterranean Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf where he served the Anglican Community until retirement in 2007.[5]
