statement in response to the GAFCON Primates' Communiqué

are delighted that the GAFCON Primates have given their support for the consecration of a Missionary Bishop. We thank God that the number of churches is growing and that an increasing number of individuals are exploring ordination with us. As a result, we have an urgent need for more episcopal leadership. The consecration of a Missionary Bishop will help us achieve our gospel ambition of planting 25 healthy Anglican churches by 2025 and 250 by 2050. This will enable many more people to hear the greatest news in the world, that Jesus Christ died on the cross so that anyone who puts their faith in him will spend eternity as a beloved child of his Father.
