New bishops for AMIE

20 June 2022

It is with great joy that we announce the appointment of two new bishops for the Anglican Mission in England. Tim Davies and Lee McMunn will serve as Assistant Bishops under the leadership of Bishop Andy Lines.

These appointments were endorsed by the AMIE Synod after a thorough process of references, conversations and interviews.

Together with Bishop Andy, Tim and Lee will endeavour to provide a relational episcopacy, pastoring pastors, visiting churches, keeping mission as a top priority... Above all, keeping Jesus at the centre of everything we do.

Bishop Andy explains...

"During the Covid pandemic, we developed a practice of regular ministerial zoom calls. The amount of contact that the bishop has had with clergy and other leaders has been untypical of experiences elsewhere and at other times, and has been much appreciated. We are keen to retain this strongly relational model of episcopacy in a context where it has clearly not been a common experience."
