Diocesan events – postponements and cancellations

Like many others, the diocese has had to look ahead and postpone or cancel some important events.

Diocesan Synod which was scheduled for 25 June is postponed but a new date will be announced in due course. Parish General Vestry meetings will also not go ahead at the moment.

Installation of Archdeacon and Canons

The installation of the Revd Canon Ken Higgins as the Archdeacon of Down and the Revds Bill Press and Helene Steed as Chapter Canons of Down Cathedral is postponed until government guidelines allow for this to happen.

Saturday Night Live

April’s Saturday Night Live has been cancelled. Watch out for further news about the June event.

This was planned for May. For now it has been postponed with a possible new date in the autumn.

At the moment the intention is that our Kilbroney Camps will go ahead as planned. The same applies to Bible Week.
