A study of Anglicanism in Latin America, Australasia and the Pacific Rim shows how the Communion has proliferated and decentralised in the last 50 years.
"If GAFCON creates parallel structures what does this mean for the Communion? Are we heading into a separate church? If that is the direction, are we happy to wake up one day and say that we are not a part of the Anglican Communion? I do not think that we have arrived at that stage."
GAFCON is clearly here to stay. Questions remain about the role it will play in the lives and ministries of its supporters and detractors.
