Images from Saturday’s Installation of the 8th Bishop of Christchurch, Bishop Victoria Matthews, speak for themselves. A thousand people packed the cathedral for a warm welcome which included Ngai Tahu and the Hui Amorangi O Te Waipounamu and Tikanga Pasefika. Bishop Mark MacDonald, National Indigenous Bishop of the Anglican Church of Canada, preached.
