Chichester Diocese welcomes Ruth, our new Bishop of Horsham, and Will, our new Bishop of Lewes
Our new Bishops of Horsham and Lewes were officially welcomed last Sunday afternoon, 13 September, at Chichester Cathedral.
Their installation services were live-streamed. You can watch videos of their installation services here: https://www.chichester.anglican.org/liveservices/
Bishop Martin said recently that the installation of bishops Ruth and Will was to mark their incorporation into the life of the diocese and that we were welcoming them with “a great sense of confidence and hope”.
Together with Bishop Martin, the new bishops are now launching their ministry by ordaining new deacons and priests individually in churches right across the Diocese . There will be seventeen parish-wide celebrations between 19 September and 11 October led by Bishop Martin and Bishops Ruth and Will.
