Christchurch vicar Reverend Andy Carley of St Paul's in Papanui has revealed he will join with other parish clerics from across the country to establish a new national diocese. He said nine clergy from seven parishes in Canterbury had resigned and would start to form the diocese, separate from the synod of the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. The parishes are St John's Latimer Square, St Stephen's in Shirley, St John's in Woolston, St Saviour's and St Nicholas in Barrington, St Christopher's in Avonhead and St Mark's in Rakaia. "We will be joining together with other clergy and parishes from around New Zealand to establish a new extraprovincial Anglican diocese, one recognised by the majority of the world's Anglicans, but is separate from the current New Zealand Anglican diocese," he said. •Turn to page 4 Christchurch Pioneer Stadium 3 rd & 4 th November 9am-4pm Daily Free Tickets Online!
