    Apologies if this is in the wrong place.
    I'm trying to find information on the Christian Episcopal Church in England. I think it was started

    Further apologies...no idea why the post was curtailed. As I was saying, I thought the Church was started in England in 2017 with Gavin Ashenden as its missionary bishop. There are larger parts in the US and Canada but as I'm in England I was hoping to find info for there,
    As I understand it, it seeks to be a sort of orthodox Anglican church, sticking closely to the Bible, not accepting same-sex marriage and restricting clerics to male only. I could be wrong on any of that but the whole area of Christianity is so fragmented that it's difficult for a layman like me to really understand the differences.

    Is this the same as the High Church of England? that replaced the Catholic Church after Henry VIII

    I don't think so. It's very confusing but I think the high church refers more to the Anglo-Catholic idea. This one is/was something new, an offshoot leaning towards orthodox Anglicanism, pro-life, anti-LGBT, heavily Bible based and possibly with some trappings of high church liturgy.
