The Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, will be installed in Lisburn Cathedral on Sunday February 20 at 6.30pm.
In something of a break with tradition, the service will focus on the young people of the Diocese of Connor. After the Bishop is admitted to the Cathedral and installed in his seat, he will receive a ‘charge’ from members of the Connor Youth Forum as they share something of their hopes for his leadership in the diocese. In the context of contemporary worship, younger members of the diocese will also read and pray as the Bishop responds to their charge and challenges them to hear God’s call to serve alongside him in building the Church in Connor.
Following the service, people will meet informally outside and in the Cathedral Hall to share hotdogs, chat and take a few photo booth pictures.
Any young person in the diocese is invited. Please note that space at the service will be limited and adults are asked only to request a place if they are bringing young people with them. Young people are asked to book their place by speaking to their parish clergy or youth leader.
Those who are not attending are invited to share in the service online by joining on the Lisburn Cathedral’s YouTube channel.
