DescriptionCorrespondence and papers on the formation of the diocese of Gibraltar in Europe, a unification of the old diocese of Gibraltar and the bishop of London's jurisdiction of northern and central Europe (the Fulham jurisdiction). The file includes material on the Anglican Advisory Committee for Europe (comprising representatives from the diocese of Gibraltar, the Fulham jurisdiction and the American Convocation of Churches in Europe); General Synod's working party on the diocese for Europe (including its report, 'A Diocese for Europe?, G.S. Misc. 32, 1974, and a memorandum by Ellison in reply); a statement on the future of the Fulham jurisdiction and the diocese of Gibraltar agreed by Ellison, Donald Coggan, archbishop of Canterbury, John Satterthwaite, bishop of Fulham and Gibraltar, and Bishop John Howe, secretary-general of the Anglican Consultative Council, which was sent out to chaplains of the Fulham jurisdiction for their acceptance or rejection, together with their subsequent replies; and speeches by Ellison in General Synod and the House of Lords (texts included). The papers are especially concerned with the practical difficulties inherent in the proposals, particularly relations between Church of England chaplaincies and American episcopal 'parishes', pension provisions for Anglican chaplains, the representation of the new diocese in General Synod and its inclusion in the province of Canterbury, and the legal title for the diocese and its bishop. Correspondents include John Satterthwaite, bishop of Fulham and Gibraltar, subsequently appointed first bishop of Gibraltar in Europe (July 1980), Harold Isherwood and Ambrose Weekes, assistant bishops of Gibraltar, Bishop John W. A. Howe, secretary-general of the Anglican Consultative Council, and John M. Allin, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States of America.
