About 1000 people packed into Peterborough Cathedral today (29 June) for the annual St Peter’s Day celebration service, at which the new Suffragan Bishop of Brixworth was installed and a declaration of intent between the Peterborough and Seoul dioceses was signed.

At the signing ceremony, Bishop Paul reflected on the 130-year history of the Anglican Church in Korea and the 1400-year history of the church in Peterborough Diocese. “It’s like a young baby linking with a very old grandpa!” he said through an interpreter.
Archbishop Paul is present in the diocese for a few days with five other church leaders from Seoul. This is the first step in exploring the development of an official link between the two dioceses. Their visit follows a visit to Korea by Bishop Donald and others from Peterborough Diocese earlier this year.
Peterborough Diocese already has a link with the Diocese of Bungoma
in Kenya which continues. A briefing note about the link between the Dioceses of Peterborough and Seoul
