Anglican leaders gather to work towards visionary future

Fellowship of Confessing AnglicansMore than 200 delegates from 30 Provinces of the Anglican Communion will gather in London in April to build on the work of the GAFCON conference in Jerusalem and in the words of the organisers to ‘help turn the present crisis moment into a visionary future’.
The leaders are clergy and laity, men and women from 29 countries.
“We are committed to building networks and partnerships of orthodox Anglicans, strong in their witness to Jesus Christ and the transforming power of His Spirit, to face the challenge of mission around the world” said the Most Rev’d Eliud Wabukala, Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya and Chairman of the GAFCON Primates Council.
The gathering is the first leadership conference since the landmark GAFCON meeting in Jerusalem in 2008.
The General Secretary of the FCA, Archbishop Peter Jensen says “Many more leaders will be included in leadership gatherings and another larger GAFCON meeting, but we are praying that this will lay a good platform for the future of the movement.”
“The aim of the conference is to unite us behind the goals of FCA and equip us to fulfitl them. It is vital that we understand the nature of the gospel and the nature of the church and so the theme is the uniqueness and sufficiency of Christ, the One who is the heart of the gospel and the Head of His church” said Dr Jensen.
Members of the FCA have affirmed the Jerusalem Declaration and also the goals of the movement.
The five days of the conference include daily worship and testimony, Bible studies and plenary sessions to explore and apply the Lordship of Christ over the world, over the church and over the individual.
