On 20 May 2021, it was reported that Tim Dakin, Bishop of Winchester, had "stepped back" as Bishop for six weeks, in light of the threat of a Diocesan Synod motion of no confidence in his leadership. David Williams, Bishop of Basingstoke also "stepped back" and Sellin served as acting diocesan bishop. [2] Dakin's and Williams' leave, and therefore Sellin's time as acting bishop, was later extended to the end of August 2021. [3]
