Bishop of Ebbsfleet

Bishop of Ebbsfleet

The Bishop of Ebbsfleet is a suffragan bishop who fulfils the role of a provincial episcopal visitor for the whole of the Province of Canterbury in the Church of England.[1]

The position was created in 1994 and licensed by the Archbishop of Canterbury as a "flying bishop" to provide episcopal oversight for parishes throughout the province which do not accept the sacramental ministry of bishops who have participated in the ordination of women. The position is named after Ebbsfleet in Thanet, Kent.

Jonathan Baker was consecrated as a bishop on 16 June 2011 at Southwark Cathedral.[2] His installation as the fourth Bishop of Ebbsfleet is yet to be announced.
