Former Queen's chaplain Gavin Ashenden consecrated as 'missionary bishop'

Source: Twitter

Gavin Ashenden, the former chaplain to the Queen who earlier this year resigned from the Church of England over its 'liberalising' trend, has been consecrated a bishop. 

He has been consecrated as a missionary bishop to the UK in the Christian Episcopal Church, one of the continuing Anglican churches that emerged in the United States in the ongoing disputes in The Episcopal Church over the ordination of homosexuals and women. 

Report here.

Congratulations and best wishes to Bishop Ashenden as he begins his mission among us.
