Abp. Justin Welby on GAFCON

The Archbishop of Canterbury answers a question of whether the Church of England plans to “support and encourage those bishops, clergy, and laity who plan to attend GAFCON” in Jerusalem this year:

We strongly agree with the view of the [World Mission and Anglican Communion Panel] that international relationships contribute to the development of discipleship and mission. I am personally pleased that every diocese has some link to Anglican Provinces across the world, and we are keen to continue developing these relationships. The recent Primates Meeting underlined the importance of such relationships. I have had conversations with, and listened to, the views of those planning to attend the GAFCON conference, and am keen to increase attendance at any event that encourages the flourishing of the whole Anglican Communion.
