Each Honorary Assistant Bishop holds the Bishop’s Commission for one of two reasons: that (a) he is the currently serving bishop in office of a Church or Diocese on the Continent in Communion with the Church of England, or (b) that for some other reason or expertise the Bishop has invited him to accept his Commission to minister as a bishop in our Diocese.
Chaplains may approach honorary assistant bishops direct to invite their involvement in a liturgical celebration or pastoral activity. The archdeacon should be informed. A chaplain who wishes a bishop whose name is not on this list to be invited to minister (whether currently in office or retired), should inform the diocesan Bishop who will write to invite the bishop in question.
The Diocesan Handbook has the following at C1(j):
From time to time the diocesan Bishop commissions honorary assistant bishops to share with him and the Suffragan bishop in Episcopal ministry in the Diocese. The assistant bishops may accept invitations from chaplains to confirm or preside at worship without further recourse to the diocesan Bishop.
A chaplain who wishes to invite to minister in a particular chaplaincy any bishop in communion who is not already an honorary assistant bishop of this Diocese, should note that they should ask the diocesan Bishop to invite the bishop in question to minister as requested.
Chaplaincies are liable for the travel costs and other expenses of any honorary assistant bishop whom they invite to minister in the chaplaincy.
