Preparations are well underway for the consecration of the Rev Canon Anne Dyer as the Bishop of Aberdeen and Orkney. The consecration service will take place in St Andrew’s Cathedral, Aberdeen on Thursday 1 March at 1pm. It is anticipated that the service will be live-streamed; further details of this and the service itself will be available shortly.
In addition to a large number of clergy trained by Canon Dyer in both Scotland and England, the Cathedral is also looking forward to welcoming a good representation of people from the churches across the diocese – both mainland and island – to the consecration service. Joining them will be representatives from civic, political, business and education interests across the city of Aberdeen and beyond.
In preparing for consecration Canon Dyer says “I continue to look forward to my consecration and ministry as Bishop of Aberdeen & Orkney with great anticipation. As the date approaches I am becoming increasingly aware of the demands of leadership in the diocese and of my new role within the wider church, and am grateful for the prayerful support in my preparation for this.”
