Ken Gill (Kenneth Edward Gill; born 22 May 1932) is a retired Anglican bishop – he was the Assistant Bishop of Newcastle in the Church of England and the diocesan Bishop of Karnataka Central in the Church of South India.
Gill was born to Fred and Elsie Gill, and attended Harrogate Grammar School in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. He married Edna Hammond in 1957, and they have three children: one son and two daughters. Gill studied at the Methodist training college Hartley Victoria College, Manchester, and was ordained a deacon in the Church of South India Diocese of Mysore in 1958 and a presbyter in 1960 – that church is a united church comprising (among others) Methodists and Anglicans. He remained in that diocese until 1972.
In 1972, Gill was consecrated bishop of the CSI Diocese of Karnataka Central, where he served until 1980, when he returned to the United Kingdom. In the Church of England, he became the first full-time ("stipendiary") Assistant Bishop of Newcastle until his 1998 retirement. As of July 2012[update], he is a retired bishop in the Scottish Episcopal Church Diocese of Edinburgh.
