New Bishops Mission Order

Jonny Baker, who swears he is not up to his usual April Fools tricks, posts about a bishop’s mission order being created in the Church of England to enable a new form of church that isn’t within parish boundaries. Check it out and then download the document.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Yeah – this one looks legit – Jonny doesn’t strike me as the type to invest this much time in creating fake webpages. As noted on Jonny’s blog, if Kester (esp. if there’s help from Pete) started posting stuff on 4-1, then I’d know something’s up. Meeting Jonny tomorrow to chill for a bit in the Wall Street area. Try to imagine the two of us hanging around this mecca of commerce. Weird.

  • If Jonny is on Trinity’s dime, he’s paying. If not, we’ll go dutch. Depending on how much time he has, I offered to give him a tour of the Seaport, Ground Zero, the anatomically correct Wall Street bull statue, and whatever else interests him.

  • Def. legit, it’s been being discussed for some time… had a chat with my Bishop about it this afternoon

  • says something that people think it might be an April fool – not least how little people know about the Church of England and the Anglican missional tradition

  • Well speaking for Andrew and moi – know about the CoE – we also know Jonny. But as I said, a joke of this magnitude would require someone like Kester to pull it off.
