Jersey – A Dangerous Thought
I read the following sections of the Channel Islands Agreement that it handsÂ ALLÂ functions of the Bishop of WinchesterÂ in relation toÂ JerseyÂ overÂ to the Bishop of Dover.
The Bishop of Winchester,
(i) appoints the Bishop of Dover as an Assistant Bishop in the Diocese
(ii) delegates to him the Episcopal oversight and functions reserved to the Bishop of Winchester under Jersey Canons and the customs and protocols of the Deanery of Guernsey
(iii) delegates to him such other episcopal functions asÂ may beÂ assigned to the Bishop of Winchester in all other ecclesiastical legislation, canons, customs and protocols as may apply in the islands
Does that mean that the Steel ReportÂ should beÂ delivered to the Bishop of Dover andÂ NOTÂ the Bishop of Winchester?
