The service brought together people from across the Church of Ireland, including representatives from the bishop's new dioceses, as well as special guests from civic life and senior representatives from other Churches. The service of consecration was led by the Archbishop of Armagh, The Most Revd Alan Harper, OBE, and the preacher was The Rt Revd The Lord Eames of Armagh.
