CEC Bishop issues Statement on the Consecration of Bishop Gavin Ashenden September 27, 2017 The following is a statement from The Rt. Robert David Redmile, Lord Bishop of Richmond, British Columbia, regarding the Episcopal Consecration of the Right Reverend Gavin Roy Pelham Ashenden, Suffragan Bishop in Normandy and England: Since the gracious acceptance by Her Majesty the Queen of his resignation as one of Her Majesty's Chaplains, and his recent resignation from the ordained ministry of the Church of England, the Right Reverend Gavin Roy Pelham Ashenden is now in a position to make known to the members of the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion, and to the British public in general, his status as a Bishop of the Catholic and Apostolic Church.As the Church of England is in the process of abandoning Christian teaching on culture, sexuality, marriage and the uniqueness of Christian revelation, the Bishops of the Christian Episcopal Church believed that it was their responsibility to offer a renewed episcopal oversight and encouragement to those Anglicans in the UK and Europe who had become distressed and disillusioned by the changes of direction and the adoption of secular values by the Church of England.Dr Ashenden trained originally in the law, and was ordained as an Anglican priest in Southwark Cathedral in 1980.They can be straight, or he can bend them a little bit at the knee.
