Rev Calvin Robinson, a curate who made headlines in recent months for accusing the Church of England of blocking him from priesthood, has been ordained in a Free Church of England church in London.
“When God calls you to something no person can get in his way no matter how wicked or woke,” Robinson told his fellow GB News presenter Nana Akua.
“People try to get in the way of God’s plan, but no one can do that,” he continued.
Rev Robison left the Church of England earlier this year, after he accused it of blocking his progression because of his right-wing political views.
In May, he told Premier Christian News he was due to start a curacy at a church in Holborn, London but after weeks of silence the role was no longer available for him.
He then submitted a subject access request which requires the church to release all personal information on him and he said it showed church leaders were uncomfortable with his social and political views and would be a distraction.
But on Saturday, Rev Robison was ordained as a Deacon at Christ Church, Harlesden by the Rt Rev Dr Paul Hunt, Bishop of the Southern Diocese of the breakaway Free Church of England.
In a statement on its Facebook page, the church said: “We pray our Lord uses Rev Calvin to build Christ Church according to his will and to his glory.
“Please uphold Rev Calvin and Christ Church Harlesden family in your prayers as Rev Calvin starts his ministry in Harlesden.”
The ceremony was led by Rt Rev Dr Paul Hunt together with former chaplain to the Queen Rev Gavin Ashenden giving the sermon and actor turned politician Laurence Fox reading from the Bible.
