CANADA: Bishop Terry Buckle joins ANiC

Bishop Terry Buckle has joined the Anglican Network in Canada, following in the footsteps of Bishop William Anderson who left the ACoC for ANiC in November last year.

The ANiC is a diocese of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).

In 2003 Bishop Terry offered alternative episcopal oversight to New Westminster parishes unwilling to continue under Bishop Michael Ingham after he approved same-sex blessings. The offer did not fill Ingham with unalloyed joy and was later retracted.

In 2005 he was elected metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of British Columbia and Yukon and he also served as chaplain to the Zacchaeus Fellowship, a group of Christian believers who have struggled with same-sex attraction.

ANiC Bishop Charlie Masters welcomed Bishop Terry Buckle and his wife Blanche into the Anglican Network in Canada.

They continue to reside in Whitehorse, Yukon. Bishop Terry is a retired Bishop of the Diocese of Yukon and a Metropolitan within the Anglican Church of Canada.

As of June 14th, 2018, Bishop Terry has relinquished the exercise of ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada and was welcomed to the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) by Bishop Charlie early in July.

As a retired bishop in ANiC, he will be given a General Permission from Bishop Charlie to exercise all the priestly functions such as preaching, teaching, and celebrating communion.

Bishop Charlie stated, "We are delighted to welcome such a godly, orthodox bishop, whom we have known for many years, into our midst. His partnership in the Gospel, his passion for the Gospel, his supportive friendship and his many years of experience in Christian service, and now his excitement about continuing to serve the Lord Jesus, will be a blessing to the future of the Anglican Network in Canada."
