The Church of Bangladesh brings together the Anglican and English Presbyterian Churches.
Following the creation of independent Church of Bangladesh, efforts were made to increase local leadership. The Rt. Rev. B. D. Mondal was consecrated as the first national bishop of Dhaka Diocese in 1975. He tried to follow the path of Bishop Blair, by encouraging the active participation of lay leaders from all sections of the church congregations. After the creation of the Synod, Rt. Rev. B. D. Mondal became the first moderator of the Church of Bangladesh and Rt. Rev. Michael S. Baroi the deputy moderator. At the time of Rt. Rev. B. D. Mondal's retirement, a new bishop was elected, and in January 2003 Rt. Rev. Paul S. Sarkar became the third national bishop of the Church of Bangladesh.
