A Service of Ordination of Andrew Campbell as a deacon to serve an internship in St Anne’s Cathedral took place on the Cathedral on September 9.
Andrew was ordained by the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, and the preacher was the Rev Darren McCartney, rector of Knockmamuckley, Diocese of Down and Dromore, who is soon to take up his new position as suffragan (assistant) Bishop of the Arctic.
A native of Carrickfergus, Andrew lives in Lisburn with his wife Allison. He was educated at Belfast High School and read Ancient History and Byzantine Studies at Queen’s University. He went on to read Theology at Union Theological College.
During his time at St Anne’s Andrew will be writing a PhD thesis on the ethical impact of Jesus’ death.
Prior to his ordination, Andrew worked with the Church of Ireland as student worker in the chaplaincy team in both the Jordanstown and Belfast campuses and as a youth worker in St Nicholas, Carrickfergus.
