Bishop Will who is now the Bishop of Lewes and Bishop Ruth, who is the new Bishop of Horsham will be formally installed at 2pm and 3.30pm respectively.

At each service the new bishop will be supported by the presence of family and friends and each will attend the others' service.

Bishop Martin said recently: “The installation of bishops Ruth and Will is going to mark their incorporation into the life of the diocese, and we welcome them with a great sense of confidence and hope. This is the very best welcome we can give them and their families in the present circumstances and it’s great that the installations will be streamed, enabling many others to join us on-line.”

Together with Bishop Martin, the new bishops will launch their ministry by ordaining new deacons and priests individually in churches right across the Diocese in the weeks ahead.
