Bishop Bruce’s visitation schedule

A complete list of Bishop Bruce’s scheduled church visitations can be found here.

Note. Weekday “business” visitations are no longer taking place, which means we’re returning to a “once every 18 months” — or thereabouts — visitation schedule. We have scheduled approximately one year of visitations, which are scheduled roughly in a similar order, chronologically, as the previous schedule. This means the 12 churches that were most recently visited appear at the bottom of the schedule (they have just had a bishop’s visit!). So don’t worry if your church does not appear in the list, you’re just not yet scheduled. Keep watching the New Spirit for visitation schedule updates.
