Preaching and singing as AME members gather

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The 129th session of the Bermuda Annual Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) is well under way at Fairmont Southampton Resort.

Presiding over the five-day event is Bishop Gregory G M Ingram, along with the host Presiding Elder of Bermuda, the Rev Betty L Furbert-Woolridge, and the Bishop's wife, Rev Dr Jessica Kendall Ingram. She is the Episcopal Supervisor of the First Episcopal District of the far-flung AME Church which Bishop Ingram heads.

The improvised altar at the hotel was beautifully decorated and packed with a host of distinguished bishops, local and foreign elders and other church dignitaries.

Rev Nicholas Tweed was the worship leader. The morning service was highlighted by soul-stirring preaching, singing and liturgical dancing. The conference sermon, Victory in the Wilderness, was delivered by the Rev Terry D Hassell, Pastor of Heard Chapel.

Bishop Ingram will bring the conference to a close tomorrow afternoon with a commissioning service and the reading of appointments.
