Bishop likely to be appointed next spring

Talks between church, community and civic groups continue today

It’s likely the Island’s next Lord Bishop will be appointed by next spring.

A series of talks continue today (Friday) with church, community and civic groups to help determine who will succeed Robert Paterson in the role from which he retires next week.

A public meeting was also held on Wednesday night.

Advisers from both the church and state will then submit their findings to the Crown Nominations Commission.

Edward Chaplain, the Prime Minister’s appointments secretary, says it’s important to hear from a wide range of Islanders as possible.
