Church Leaders attend Coronation of King Charles III
Several of Ireland’s Church leaders, past and present, were guests at the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla in London on Saturday 6th May 2023.
Lord Eames, a past pupil of Methodist College Belfast and former Primate of All Ireland, had the pleasure of meeting the girl singers from Methody before they performed at the Coronation. Lord Eames was later present in the procession during the service as a member of the Order of Merit, an honour in the personal gift of the Sovereign, which he received from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2007.
A photo of the Church Leaders who attended the service as guests is also included below. In the shot are Archbishops John McDowell and Eamon Martin, the Rt Revd Dr John Kirkpatrick (Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland), and the Revd David Nixon (President of the Methodist Church in Ireland).
