The Consecration event was very well attended. It was held at the Limbe Sports Club, in Blantyre and the congregation sat obediently for about 6 hours under a hot sun and canvas (stoical I thought).

The theme for the consecration was “The Good Shepherd” and Albert Chama, Archbishop of Central Africa, delivered a very memorable and inspirational address on the theme.

I was called to make the presentation from the Diocese of Birmingham of a length of purple cloth to make two bishop’s cassocks, and later to deliver a formal Greeting
