Sandy Millar to be Bishop of Uganda in London

6 September 2004

Uganda to send missionary to Britain
By Ruth Gledhill, Religion Correspondent
September 06, 2004

"THE Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has given his blessing to an extraordinary scheme for an African archbishop to consecrate a leading evangelical clergymen as a bishop to work as a missionary in Britain.

The Most Rev Henry Orombi, Archbishop and Primate of Uganda, is to consecrate the Rev Sandy Millar, former Rector of Holy Trinity Brompton, as a Bishop in Uganda.

Evangelical churches that disagree with their diocesan bishops on gays and were thinking of importing conservative African or Asian bishops for confirmations and other services will now be able to call on Mr Millar, one of the international evangelical movement's most respected figures."

The difficulty with this appointment is that whilst Mr Millar has a good track record on teaching regarding sexual practice, not least through the Alpha Course, he has been very affirming of Archbishop Rowan Williams who clearly teaches error on this very subject.
