John Waine KCVO (born 20 June 1930) was Bishop of Chelmsford from 1986 to 1996; and previously Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich from 1978 to 1986,[1] Bishop of Stafford, 1975–1978. He also served as Clerk of the Closet from 1989 to 1997, and in retirement served as a lay member on the Press Complaints Commission.[2]

Educated at Prescot Grammar School and the University of Manchester, he studied for ordination at Ridley Hall, Cambridge before embarking on an ecclesiastical career with a Curacy at St Mary's, West Derby[3](Liverpool). Incumbencies at Ditton, Southport and Kirkby in the same diocese followed[4] before consecration to the episcopate on 24 June 1975 by Donald Coggan, Archbishop of Canterbury, at St Paul's Cathedral.[5] He was translated to become Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich in November 1978,[6] serving until he became Bishop of Chelmsford in 1986. Having become Bishop of Chelmsford shortly beforehand at the confirmation of his election, he was enthroned at Chelmsford Cathedral on 31 May 1986[7] and he retired on 30 April 1996.[8] He received an honorary doctorate from the University of Essex.[9] Waine was also the Prelate of the Venerable Order of Saint John until 24 June 2007.[10]
