About Bishop David

He was ordained in the Anglican Church of Canada and served in Niagara Diocese. Following this he was mission co-ordinator for Latin America and the Caribbean for the Anglican Church of Canada and then the Director of Ecumenical Affairs and Studies of the Anglican Communion. In October 2002, he was consecrated as Suffragan Bishop in Europe and works from his office in that great European city called London.

Outside his work for the Diocese in Europe, David has a particular interest in languages, films, and gadgets.
