Michael Eric Marshall (born 14 April 1936) was the eighth Bishop of Woolwich in the Church of England (Anglican).[1]

Marshall was educated at Christ's College, Cambridge and was ordained in 1961. His first ministry position was as a curate at St Peter's Spring Hill, Birmingham after which he was temporarily a tutor at Ely Theological College and then a chaplain at the University of London.[2] Appointed vicar of All Saints, Margaret Street in 1969, six years later he became the Bishop of Woolwich.[3] Resigning in 1984 he became the Director of the Anglican Institute in St Louis, Missouri in the United States before returning to England to be Director of Evangelism at Chichester Theological College. He then became, first, priest in charge and, later, rector of Holy Trinity Sloane Street (1997–2007). In 2003, he founded the Awareness Foundation with the Revd Nadim Nassar. He is the President of the Awareness Foundation and co-author of the Awareness Course. A prominent author, his many books include A Pattern of Faith(1966), Glory under Your Feet (1978), Pilgrimage and Promise (1981), Renewal in Worship (1982), The Gospel Connection and Flame in the Mind (2002). In retirement he serves as an assistant bishop in London.[4] His "SPA" (Scripture Prayer Action) ministry which was developed with the Rev'd Soon Han Choi was initially based at the Church of the Annunciation, Marble Arch and he continues to work as President of the Awareness Foundation, with special responsibility for promoting their educational ministry in the United States. Marshall's most recent book, The Transforming Power of Prayer: From Illusion to Reality, was the 2011 Mowbray Lent book.

In 2011, it was announced that Marshall would be spending a year in New York City as the interim rector of the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest on 5th Avenue.
