The Anglican Bishop of Peru has been welcomed by members of the Gibraltar Archdeaconry Synod meeting in Torrevieja (Spain).

Representatives of the churches in Spain, Portugal, Morocco and Gibraltar forged a link some years ago with the former Bishop of Peru, Rt Rev Bill Godfrey and have enjoyed visits and fellowship links. When Bishop Bill retired three years ago Bishop Jorge was appointed to Peru and is based in the capital Lima from there he serves his diocese covering the entire country.
Bishop Jorge has been sharing his experiences of a vastly different Spanish speaking Anglican diocese and is rapidly learning English so he is well prepared for the Lambeth Conference in 2020. He says he is impressed by the depth of ecumenical links and the way many churches in the Gibraltar Archdeaconry are able to use Roman Catholic churches and participate in shared events.
