Earlier today, Lambeth Palace issued a Press Notice confirming the Bishops who will play a role in the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey, this includes our own Bishop of Hereford, The Rt Revd Richard Jackson. 


Following the announcement he said: “It is an immense honour and privilege to be part of The Coronation Service of Their Majesties, The King and Queen Consort. There are several other Bishops taking part in the service at Westminster Abbey. I will be serving as a Bishop Assistant to Her Majesty The Queen during the service.


“Like most people in this country and beyond, I have no memory of the last Coronation.  This is a momentous occasion in the history of our Nation and a time to come together in celebration. The Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey is a deeply Christian ceremony rooted in the Bible and tradition. 


Along with many other Christians in this country and beyond, as well as those of other faiths, I continue to pray for Their Majesties as they prepare for Their Coronation.”
