'Irregular' Ordinations at Berrylands' Christ Church

Local clergy fly in a South African bishop to ordain gay deacons.

Earlier this month an ordination was conducted in defiance of the Diocese of Southwark's bishop Rt Rev Dr Tom Butler.

On November 2nd, Revd Richard Coekin unofficially ordained his staff in defiance of the local Bishop's wishes, resulting in the revoking of his license. The ordinations are thought to be backed by an evangelical network called Reform, that are know to protest against bishops stance on gay and lesbian people.
