The Rt. Revd. Nicholas B.B. Dill
Bishop Nick was born on Dock Hill, Devonshire in hurricane Arlene in the dark ages of
1963. Husband to Fiona, Father to 6 amazing children.
A perpetual drain on his parent’s patience and money, he did two degrees – Politics and History at University of Toronto and Law at the University of London. He practiced as a barrister in London and Bermuda, working at the firm founded by his grandfather, Conyers, Dill & Pearman. During this time he felt the call of God to offer himself for ministry in the church of God and found himself selected by the Anglican Church of Bermuda for training at Wycliffe Hall Theological College at the University of Oxford in England.
Thereafter he completed a four year internship in a large and thriving Evangelical Anglican Church in England, becoming the associate minister there for a further three years. He was later appointed Priest in Charge of the Parish of Pembroke here in Bermuda, serving the congregations of St. John’s, St. Monica’s and St. Augustine’s. Having spent a number of years in Pembroke he was involved in setting up community based ecumenical programs to help address community needs in response to the gang violence that erupted in Pembroke East, helping to form the grass roots organization One Community Unified apart from the usual tasks of baptizing, marrying and burying people.
Bishop Dill helped to re-establish links between the church and the local schools and was instrumental in setting up community outreach and feeding programs across the parish and new initiatives for outreach to the youth and children.
In February 2013 he was elected as the next Bishop of Bermuda. In May of the same year, he was consecrated in the Cathedral in Hamilton.
Bishop Dill is looking to see where God is leading the Church – but knows it includes a greater emphasis on evangelism, youth, communication, work within the community and with Christian brothers and sisters of every denomination, fueled by the scriptures and prayer.
