Updated: AMiE Ordinations

Dec 4, 2017 by

Thursday 7 December marks an historic moment in the life of the Gafcon movement and the wider Anglican Communion. Bishop Andy Lines, who was consecrated as a missionary bishop to the UK and Europe by the Gafcon Primates in June, will ordain nine men who will serve in the Anglican Mission in England (AMiE)…

…AMiE is part of a response to the urgent need for mission in a society which has largely abandoned its Christian heritage and to the confusion being caused by the timidity of the Church of England in upholding the unchanging truth of the gospel of Christ.

As a global family of confessing Anglicans, let us join together in thanking God for the courage of these faithful pioneers … and in praying for much fruit from their ministries.

News from Anglican Mission in England: Statement about ordinations

A significant event in the life of the Church will take place on Thursday 7th December 2017 in London. The Anglican Mission in England (AMiE) will be holding its first ordination service led by the newly consecrated Missionary Bishop, Andy Lines.

AMiE is a growing network of churches who are Anglican by conviction. They are not part of the central structures of the Church of England but are connected to the global Anglican family through Gafcon […]

[…] Up until now, AMiE’s clergy have either come from the Church of England, or have been ordained by overseas Bishops. Now, for the first time, nine men will be ordained together by an English Bishop who can give them regular oversight as they begin their ministries.
