According to the Church Times, the Bishop of Salisbury is investigating a new church plant affiliated with the AMiE:
THE Bishop of Salisbury, the Rt Revd Nicholas Holtam, is seeking clarification about the involvement of the Rt Revd John Ellison at a service of commissioning for a new church in the diocese that is affiliated to the Anglican Mission in England (AMiE) .
Christ Church, Salisbury, has been meeting since the summer. Bishop Ellison, chairman of the Panel of Bishops of AMiE, presided at a formal service of thanksgiving and commission on 6 December.
A statement from the diocese on Monday said that “No one involved in planting the church has contacted the Bishop, nor is the Diocese aware of any consultation with Churches Together in Salisbury about the need for a church plan.
“Ideally we might want to welcome Christ Church as fellow workers in Christ, but we also wonder why another church explicitly for Anglicans is needed in Salisbury when the broad spectrum of Anglican identities is already catered for.
“The Bishop of Salisbury is seeking clarification about the involvement of Bishop John Ellison in the December service. Bishop Ellison has had to postpone two meetings arranged to discuss this matter due to illness.
