In August, Bishop Peter will embark on his first visit to Zambia as Bishop of Bath and Wells, accompanied by his wife Jane and representatives of the diocese’s World Mission group.
The link between Bath and Wells and the Anglican Dioceses of Zambia was established in the late 1970s.
Bishop Peter will spend three weeks in Zambia. He will visit all five of the Anglican dioceses in the country, getting to know people and places, forging his own personal relationships with bishops and other leaders, both clerical and lay, and seeking to strengthen “unity in diversity” between Zambia and Bath and Wells.
Speaking in advance of his trip, Bishop Peter says, “Jane and I are hugely excited about our visit to Zambia. I’m looking forward to strengthening relationships between Bath and Wells and the five dioceses, to sharing and learning from our brothers and sister in Christ and looking at how we can renew and refresh this long-standing partnership and both parties’ engagement in it.”
