The Rt Revd Andrew Proud was consecrated as an Area Bishop for the Horn of Africa within the Episcopal/Anglican Diocese of Egypt.

The Consecration took place at St. Matthews Church in Addis Ababa. Bishop Clive Handford, Bishop Mouneer Anis and Bishop Ghais Malik consecrated Bishop Proud.

Last year the Synod of the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa decided to create a new Episcopal Area within the Diocese.

Bishop Mouneer Anis, who appointed the new Area Bishop said ‘Bishop Andrew Proud was chosen because of his great wisdom and hard work in the area during the last 5 years. This has resulted in the growth of the churches in the Western Region as the number increased from 7 to 40. He has a great heart for mission and he is committed to train local ministers.’

Bishop Proud is married to Janice and has two grown up children Emma and Justin
