Eight bishops from the New Zealand dioceses met in Wellington on Monday to make their nomination that has remained confidential. On Saturday the delegates will vote on that nomination and either confirm it or ask the bishops to re-convene to nominate another of their number.

The new archbishop-elect will then lead a service in the chapel at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul in Molesworth Street. Following that the there will be an opportunity for interviews at the cathedral. The timing is yet to be determined but the service could begin at approximately 1.30pm.Media are welcome to attend the service, please contact the Rev'd Jayson Rhodes for further information.

Archbishop David Moxon is stepping down in April as Archbishop and heading to Rome to become the Anglican Communion’s chief representative to the Roman Catholic Church.

His replacement will become the Archbishop for Tikanga Pakeha, joining Archbishop Brown Turei (Te Pihopa o Aotearoa) and Archbishop Winston Halapua (Tikanga Pasefika) as one of three primates of the church in Aoteara, New Zealand and Polynesia. .
