Bishop Peter blesses copper mine workers in Zambia

On Monday 23 April, Bishop Peter visited KPM copper mine in Chingola in the Northern Diocese of Zambia to learn about the mining process, its importance and impact on the region and bless the workers there.

Bishop Peter Hancock and Bishop Ruth Worsley, accompanied by 28 parish representatives from across Bath and Wells are currently in Zambia to celebrate 40 years of the diocese’s companion link with the five Zambian dioceses.

The group of 30 are in small teams, each touring one of the dioceses of Northern, Eastern, Luapula, Lusaka and Central, staying with local hosts and absorbing and experiencing all they can of mission and ministry in a very different culture.

Bishop Peter is touring the Northern Diocese with his wife, Jane, Richard Knight from Walton and Janet Gent from Martock. The full list of participants is available here.
