WikiProject Anglicanism[edit]

A new WikiProject focussing on Anglicanism and the Anglican Communion has just been initiated: WikiProject Anglicanism. Our goal is to improve and expand Anglican-reltaed articles. If anyone (Anglican or non-Anglican) is interested, read over the project page and consider signing up. Cheers! Fishhead64 06:40, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

woman diocesan[edit]

This article makes no mention of the fact that the first Anglican woman diocesan bishop (Barbara Harris was suffragan) was in this church.--Bhuck 13:34, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

If you know it and you can verify it, you can add it into the article. :) -- Bob K | Talk 16:15, 23 June 2006 (UTC)
I know that this is the case, but I don't know the details (who, which diocese, what year). I was hoping to find them out by looking at the article, but that didn't work. :-( --Bhuck 22:11, 24 June 2006 (UTC)
Here is a useful source for other questions as well. Penny Jamieson, 1990, Dunedin is the answer to my question.--Bhuck 10:09, 11 July 2006 (UTC)


There seem to be a few inaccuracies in the article. It seems that the chuch no longer uses the title archbishop, and that the a bishop from each tikanga is elected as Co-Presiding Bishop, one of whom is elected Primate of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. Currently, the Most Revd. William Brown Turei is Primate of the ACANZP and Bishop of Aotearoa, the Most Revd. David John Moxon is Bishop of Waikato and Co-Presiding Bishop, and the Most Revd. Jabez Leslie Bryce is Bishop of Polynesia and Co-Presiding Bishop. The Co-Presiding Bishop for the Dioceses in New Zealand is elected from among the seven diocesans; the four regional bishops of Te Pihopatanga o Aotearoa are effectively suffragans of the Bishop of Aotearoa; the Diocese of Polynesia has three important, regional suffragans too. — Gareth Hughes 14:02, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

My understanding is that the term is still used. There is actually a Wikipedia article about this: Archbishop_of_New_Zealand The Angel of Islington 08:50, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Aotearoa IS New Zealand[edit]

Please consider changing the title of this article to "Anglican Church in Aotearoa/New Zealand and Polynesia" to avoid giving the impression that Aotearoa is just a small (culturally different) part of a larger country.W. Frank 16:09, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

The trouble is, if you look at, the church calls itself "Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia" with a comma. That's its official name, and it's not our job to change it here. —Angr 16:28, 15 December 2006 (UTC)
Your point is well taken. You're right, I'm wrong.W. Frank 07:12, 16 December 2006 (UTC)

Uniform format proposal[edit]

A proposal is being floated at the project page that there be a standard format for organising each article about national provinces of the Anglican Communion, including this one. Please consider participating in the straw vote and discussion. Cheers! Fishhead64 21:42, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Talk:Personal Ordinariate[edit]

Apart from the Traditional Anglican Communion, the article should really consider verifying whether groups within the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia have ever sought a similar canonical structure to the proposed personal ordinariates. ADM (talk) 05:12, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Famous politically-inspired translation change[edit]

Should be something on the dropping of the word "Zion" from the psalter for political reasons, which received world-wide news coverage in the 1980's: [1], [2] etc. -- AnonMoos (talk) 11:34, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Considerable tidying needed[edit]

The article tries to mention who the primate(s)/archbishop(s) are in too many places, and is now inconsistent with itself. The current situation is that there is an Archbishop from each tikanga and each is a Primate. Reference:
