Gavin Ashenden grew up in S.W. London, and was educated at the King’s School in Canterbury. After originally reading Law at Bristol University, he found himself with a vocation to the priesthood. In 2017, he resigned from his chaplaincy to the Queen in order to be free to speak out for the faith in the contested public forum, and subsequently appeared on media outlets across the world, including Fox News in the USA and the Bolt Report in Australia.

Believing  that the consecration of women to the episcopate represented a fatal breach with the Church of England’s Catholic orders, he  resigned from  the Church of England in 2017.

He writes as a lay Catholic apologist here <> and also contributes articles in the secular and religious press. His youtube broadcasts can be found here:
