Process begins to choose next bishop

From New Zealand-

More than 100 Anglican representatives converge on Mosgiel this weekend to start the process of appointing a new bishop of Dunedin.

Dunedin diocese ministry educator Alec Clark said the electoral synod would include priests, ministers and other representatives from churches in Otago and Southland.

The group would gather at Burns Lodge in Mosgiel tomorrow evening, with proceedings running across the weekend until a decision was made about who would replace retired bishop the Right Rev Dr Kelvin Wright.

However, if a decision was not made by Sunday evening, the group would "all go home", Dr Clark said.

Three candidates were in the running for the highest role in the Dunedin diocese and information on them would be presented to those  gathered for discussion, he said.
