And what if it were to be an evangelical?

It would be interesting, certainly.

Would he don a mitre and chasuble, recite the Angelus at the end of the Parish Mass, and bless as the people knelt on his departure?

Then, for most parishioners, that'd be fine.

I know of two current evangelical bishops who already do so.

Provincial episcopal visitors don't/shouldn't belong to any one 'party', any more than diocesans.

Indeed. I've known evangelical bishops who happily do 1 and 3 but not 1, 2, and 3. The trio would be be the winner.

I am told that Nicky Gumble joins in the Angelus at S. Augustine's Queensgate (its having become an Alpha plant but maintaining the pre-existing congregation with a Solemn Mass (renamed Sung Eucharist).

So if he can do it.....

After all, the Angelus is almost entirely from scripture.

It's a fierce man-eating plant which traps unwary anglo-catholics, covers them in a sticky substance and drags them down to a place deep inside the plant from which there is no escape. See 'Sundew', 'Venus Flytrap', etc.

Alternatively, it's opening a new church in a redundant building, supported by Holy Trinity Brompton, the home of Alpha courses and suppers. Take your pick.

Technically a Church Plant in the Diocese of London. In this case, an HTB church plant. But under the authority of the Bishop.

An evangelical in Lewes didn't do Chichester any good, by the looks of the child protection scandals.

That is because he was incompetent not because he was evangelical.

From the press release you could say there was neither ineptitude nor cover up

If someone reports sexual activity with a minor, you contac the police. In other words, the diocesan child proteciton policy was crap.

But, I don't know what the government guidance was in 1997 - or the likely police response in 1997. Here is the current government guidance.

Probably - but it it still nothing to do with Benn being an evangelical.

Re- the supposed preference for PEVs being catholics, the diocesan was/is a catholic. So maybe they should be neither evangelical nor catholic. Not logical.
