AME Bishop visits Bermuda for annual conference
Bermuda’s 11 African Methodist Episcopal churches convened to meet their new Bishop at their annual church conference.
The Right Reverend Bishop Julius McAllister and his wife and Episcopal supervisor, Mother Joan McAllister, are attending the 136th Bermuda Annual Conference.
It is the first leg of their conference tour, which will send them across the First Episcopal District of the AME Church, which includes the north-east section of the US, which Bishop McAllister presides over.
The conference started with a sermon at St Paul AME Church on Victoria Street, Hamilton at 10am.
In-person activities will be held at St Paul and Mt Zion AME Church in Southampton throughout the conference.
Attendance will be limited because of Covid-19 rules, but all services and conference activities can also be watched on Zoom and the St Paul AME Church’s Facebook page.
A closing ceremony will be held at St Paul tomorrow at 3.30pm, to be headed by Bishop McAllister.
The McAllisters will leave the island on Monday to continue the series of conferences throughout the First District.
AME Church members can collect Zoom details from their pastors.
