In his sermon, Bishop Boyd told the congregation he was “delighted” for them to be in The Bahamas. “It is a lovely spot,” he said. “We have our challenges like any other country, however, it is still better in The Bahamas. God has blessed us tremendously.”  

Bishop Boyd acknowledged the Queen’s 60 years of service to the world.  

He said that she has been diligent and faithful in the execution of her duties, represents stability and continuity, and is also a link with the present and future.  

Bishop Boyd urged the congregation to pray for leaders, as their work is so often taken for granted. He then reminded leaders of their call to serve and offered the Serenity Prayer to them as a form of encouragement.  

Following the service Prince Harry attended a Queen’s Jubilee Exhibition in Rawson and Parliament Squares, downtown Bay Street.
