The Enthronement of the Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, took place in Chichester Cathedral in the context of Choral Evensong, on Sunday 25th November 2012, the Feast of Christ the King.

The Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, said that huge national and local challenges facing the Church of England can, at times, seem formidable and insurmountable but that the message of the Christian Gospel was ultimately that Christians should not be afraid of facing such difficulties.

In his Enthronement Sermon in front of a congregation gathered to welcome Dr Warner as the new diocesan bishop, he echoed the words of Jesus: "Do not be afraid." 

He added: "These are the words that Jesus speaks to us today, as still he beckons us to apprehend the reality of his presence and his power to heal, to transform, to redeem.  "Do not be afraid" to continue with the task of learning the language of the new righteousness and truth, even though we shall falter and stumble in the articulation of it."
