Bishop candidates to speak at three meetings

The Anglican Communion in Bermuda will be hosting three meetings to allow Synod members, church attendees and the public to get to know the candidates for the next Bishop of Bermuda.

Nominations have been received naming Archdeacon the Ven Andrew Doughty and the Rev. Nicholas Dill as candidates for the highest church office in Bermuda. During the meetings, the candidates will each give a short presentation on their hopes and desires for the church in Bermuda, as well as answer questions from the public.

David Cooper, who is serving as Chairman of the Vacancy in See Committee, said: “It is intended that both candidates will attend each the meeting but not together and at the same time, that is to say, one candidate will attend at 7pm and the other candidate will attend at 8.15pm.”

The first meeting is today at St Anne's Church, in Southampton, which will begin with the presentation and questioning of Archdeacon Doughty, followed by Rev Dill.

The second meeting is planned for Thursday at the Cathedral Hall in the City of Hamilton, with Rev Dill opening, followed by Archdeacon Doughty.

The final meeting is set for Tuesday January 22, in the church hall of Holy Trinity Church in Hamilton Parish, again with Archdeacon Doughty opening, followed by Rev Dill.

These meetings are open to all who are interested.

A closed meeting for the Synod is anticipated on February 2 for the election of the new Bishop.
