Bishop Hugh outside the chapel at Lambeth Palace, shortly after his consecration, with Archbishop Justin, Bishop Philip, and his consecrating bishops in the back row, from left to right, Rt Revd Andrew Watson, Bishop of Guildford, Rt Revd Dame Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London, and Rt Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Bishop of Dover.

The new Bishop of St Germans, the Rt Revd Hugh Nelson, will be taking to Facebook Live on Sunday.

He will be talking with Richard Best from the diocesan communications team, who will ask him about his life to date and the journey that led him to join us in the Diocese of Truro, and also his hopes for his ministry here. Additionally, Richard will ask him questions sent in for the occasion by people throughout the diocese.

It’s hoped this will provide people with a chance to see and hear from Bishop Hugh, and get to know him a little, at a time when the possibilities for physical gatherings, meetings and visits are limited.

It is hoped to hold a welcome service once larger groups of people can be safely accommodated.

They will be live on the Diocese of Truro Facebook page here on Sunday, from 4pm. After the event you’ll still be able to catch up with the video on the page.

If you have a question for Bishop Hugh, please email it to by Saturday evening.
