The enthronement of the 10th Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich has taken place at the cathedral in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
The bishop's enthronement is the first in Suffolk for 11 years
The Rt Reverend Nigel Stock, 57, took over as bishop from the Rt Reverend Richard Lewis in July.
The enthronement, on St Edmunds Day, is the first in Suffolk for 11 years and formally marks the bishop taking his seat in the cathedral church.
Bishop Nigel made a series of podcasts to introduce himself to the diocese.
They looked at his life and philosophy.
Born and raised in Newcastle, Bishop Nigel has had a varied church career spanning 22 years in parish ministry, including five in Papua New Guinea.
He has a wife, Carolyne, and three grown up sons.
Bishop Nigel met schoolchildren in the morning in the high altar sanctuary of the cathedral where he later took his seat for the afternoon service.
