Our preacher at the 11am service on Pentecost Sunday (May 27th) is Dr Richard Fenwick, Bishop of St Helena.
A former Dean of Monmouth, Dr Fenwick is an accomplished musician, who first came to know the Island of St Helena when he took sabbatical there to build a new Cathedral organ. He was appointed Bishop just over a year ago and is currently home in the Wales on leave.
In this Jubilee year it is worth noting that during his time at St Paul’s he was involved in many royal events including the Prince of Wale’ first Wedding and HM The Queen Mother’s 90 Birthday celebrations for which he wrote a hymn verse that HM The Queen based her Christmas message on.
St Helena is famous for being the Island that Napolean was exiled to.
