AMiE announce new bishops

Jun 20, 2022 by

From the AMiE website:

We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new bishops for the Anglican Mission in England. Tim Davies and Lee McMunn will serve as Assistant Bishops under the leadership of our Convocation Bishop, Andy Lines.

After a thorough process of references, conversations and interviews the three clergy and three lay representatives on the Bishop Election Committee confirmed the two candidates without reservation back to the Standing Committee and thence to the Synod.

On Saturday 18th June 2022, our Synod joyfully endorsed their full support for Tim and Lee to be consecrated as bishops in order to assist Andy Lines in his episcopal ministry.

We want our bishops to pastor the pastors, visit churches and keep mission as one of our top priorities. With God’s help, Andy, Tim and Lee will endeavour to provide a relational episcopacy that will keep Jesus at the centre of everything we do.

Bishop Andy Lines said in a Statement:

During the Covid pandemic, which began at about the same time as AMiE became a convocation, we developed a practice of regular ministerial zoom calls. The amount of contact that the bishop has had with clergy and other leaders has been untypical of experiences elsewhere and at other times, and has been much appreciated. We are keen to retain this strongly relational model of episcopacy in a context where it has clearly not been a common experience.

This desire, along with the contextual complexity, God-given growth, and geographical spread within AMiE have added further impetus to this initiative. We are keen to prepare for the future with more congregations planted and other existing congregations joining. We wish to pursue the principle of plurality of leadership at all levels.
