As authority is diffuse in Anglican practice episcope may be exercised across a range of levels of office within the church. For example, the Rector of a parish will have oversight of a range of assistant ministers in which s/he acts for the bishop.
As all ministry belongs to the whole church it can also be said that episkope is a formulation of the duty of care that all Christians have for one another.
