Nicholas Arthur Frayling, born 29 February 1944 in South London, United Kingdom was the Dean of Chichester between September 2002 and February 2014. Educated at the University of Exeter and Cuddesdon College, Frayling has lectured on inter-faith and political reconciliation. Before his appointment as Dean of Chichester he was Canon Precentor of Liverpool Cathedral.
In July 2013, Frayling held a public talk at Chichester Cathedral on the issue of equal marriage, as part of the annual Chichester Festivities. He expressed his view on homosexuality as "not a choice, but a given" - a view which is contrary to that of the Anglican Church.
It was announced in September 2013 that Dean Frayling would retire from active ministry. He subsequently retired on 28 February 2014 and has been granted the Freedom of the City of Chichester.
