Church of England Diocese in Europe

New dean in situ, but not installed

15 May 2020, 6 a.m.

The newly appointed dean of Holy Trinity Cathedral, Canon Ian Tarrant, arrived in Gibraltar on 16th March 2020, just as lockdown measures were taking effect. No services were taking place in the church; and many of the church leadership were confined to their homes by law.  The installation service planned for 2nd April had to be postponed, provisionally to mid-October. Canon Ian nevertheless started streaming services from 22nd March, created a new website (the old one having expired), and set up an email list to keep in touch with regular worshippers.

It is hoped that public services in the cathedral will resume in June.
