The Rt Reverend Ian D Anderson, Bishop of the Diocese of the Resurrection and Rector of Resurrection Anglican Church was called home to the Lord on April 5, 2021. Bishop Anderson faithfully served this congregation since 2009. He also served as the Presiding Bishop of the National, Reformed Anglican Church until 2019.
Bishop Anderson was a multitalented individual who enjoyed painting, traveling, and music. He proudly served our country in the United States Coast Guard and was the former Grand Pipe Master of the US Coast Guard bagpipers.
Bishop Anderson is survived by his wife Robin and his 3 adult children, 3 step-daughters, 6 grandchildren, and 9 step-grandchildren. He was laid to rest at the Jacksonville National Cemetery, in Jacksonville, Florida.
Bishop Anderson was a dedicated servant of the Lord and we, at Resurrection will miss him.

Good Palm Sunday Morning! As we begin Holy Week, I invite our parishioners and all others who wish to participate in this Sunday’s sermon and abbreviated service to view my YouTube channel. Here the Word and begin a week of reflection of our Lord’s journey to the cross.
Resurrection Anglican Church was recently blessed with beautiful, antique brass candlesticks. The Rt. Reverend Dwight Irons donated these gorgeous items from his own personal collection and we couldn’t be more thrilled.
We had them restored and polished to their original brilliance and while doing so, the restorer estimated their age at nearly 100 years old, dating from around 1920. These are truly special and add a timeless elegance to our altar.
We can’t thank you enought Bishop Irons, your gift is loved and appreciated by the entire congregation!
Resurrection Anglican Church warmly welcomed Bp. Robert Biermann as the National Church’s newest Diocesan Bishop. Bp. Biermann and his wife, Lori, from South Florida, were hosted by Resurrection’s congregation, which included a fellowship luncheon following the service. (Many thanks to coordinator, June Hart, and the many hands that prepared it.)
Today’s sermon from Matthew, Chapter 7 was preached by Bp. Biermann and reminded us that the message of the false prophets of Jesus’ day is also a relevant message for today’s world – perhaps more than ever. Being ever mindful of our responsibility to embrace sound doctrine and a faithful study of the scriptures, we as Christians have the perfect defence against these false prophets.
Bp. Biermann is the Diocesan Bishop of the Province of the Holy Spirit in Vero Beach, FL. We are excited to welcome him into the Reformed Anglican Church, and we look forward to his many gifts and talents as he labors with us in God’s vineyard. Bp. Biermann feels called to plant churches throughout the Southeastern United States, and we are very excited to see his vision of growth and outreach.
