Bishop of Fulham
Until 1980 the Bishop of Fulham was the bishop with episcopal oversight of churches in northern and central Europe. In that year, responsibility for these parishes was transferred to the Bishop of Gibraltar, as head of the renamed Diocese of Gibraltar in Europe.
Presently, the Bishop of Fulham fulfils the role of a provincial episcopal visitor for the dioceses of London, Southwark and Rochester, having pastoral oversight of those parishes in the three dioceses which cannot in good conscience accept the ministry of bishops who have participated in the ordination of women.
In November 2010, following the announcement of Bishop John Broadhurst's resignation, the Bishop of London temporarily conferred episcopal oversight for traditionalist congregations in the three dioceses to the Bishop of Edmonton. On 31 October 2012 it was announced that Jonathan Baker, then Bishop of Ebbsfleet, would translate to Fulham, resuming Broadhurst's alternative episcopal oversight responsibilities. This took place on 13 February 2013.
