FIRST WOMAN BISHOP CONSECRATED FOR NORTHUMBRIA

The largest gathering of the Open Episcopal Church took place near Berwick upon Tweed in June for its annual Congress and witnessed the consecration of Bishop Lesley Dennis at Lady Waterford Hall and the ordination of three priests on Holy Island.

An ordinand from America had travelled to attend the Congress which marked the spreading of our ministry this year to Thailand, Germany and the States.

Bishop Helen Hamilton will travel to America this autumn to conduct further ordinations.

The church has more ordinands than ever before and is enjoying a period of substantial growth.
