Further information

In January 2008, several of the most senior leaders within global Anglicanism met in a Kenyan hotel room to discuss the future of the Anglican Communion. They were compelled to meet because of decades of drift from the apostolic gospel apparent across the Communion, expressed, not least, in the widespread acceptance of same–sex relationships. Their meeting resulted in a plan to organise a gathering of Anglican Christians in Jerusalem, later that year(the geographical roots of the faith). Over 1000, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops, clergy and laity from around the world gathered to renew their commitment to the faith ‘once delivered’ and the mission of proclaiming this faith to the ends of the earth, until the end of time at the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON). More than 1,300 gathered in Nairobi, Kenya, five years later, to consolidate and focus this new work of God. These conferences, moments in the history of Christ’s church, have initiated a global movement of faithful, Anglican Christians, steadfast and determined in the cause of Christ and his gospel. Join us as we hear leaders, within this new movement, discuss the future of faithful, gospel–centred, global Anglicanism.
