The Rt Rev Halvor Nord­haug, Bishop of Bergen, has been ap­pointed an Ec­u­meni­cal Canon of South­wark Cathe­dral.

The Bishop of South­wark, the Rt Rev Christo­pher Ches­sun, said the ap­point­ment of Bishop Bergen will ‘con­tinue to strengthen the ties be­tween their dio­ce­ses’.

The Very Rev An­drew Nunn, Dean of South­wark, said: “We are de­lighted that the Bishop of Bergen is to be in­stalled as an Honorary Ec­u­meni­cal Canon. Our link with the Cathe­dral and Dio­cese of Bergen is ex­tremely im­por­tant to us. Hav­ing Bishop Halvor as a mem­ber of the Cathe­dral foun­da­tion will fur­ther en­rich that.”

Bishop Halvor said: “I feel hon­oured to be ap­pointed as an Ec­u­meni­cal Canon of South­wark Cathe­dral. My hope and prayer is that this may con­trib­ute to a grow­ing com­mu­nity and mu­tual bless­ings for our two churches.”
