For immediate release

Anglican Primates should break with U.S.

Church Society has called on the heads of the 38 provinces of the Anglican Communion to take steps to break formally with the Episcopal Church of the United States (ECUSA).

Following the appointment of an actively homosexual man as a Bishop in the US the Primates rebuked ECUSA and called them to show clear signs that they regretted this action and will not repeat it.

At the recent ECUSA General Convention it became clear that they have no intention of turning back from the course they have taken.

With the Primates due to meet early next year it is imperative that action is now taken. Since the Anglican Communion is a loose affiliation of national or provincial churches rather than a monolithic structure it is important that action taken is appropriate.

In line with Biblical teaching and historic Christian practice Church Society has called on the Primates to formally break fellowship with ECUSA.

There is within ECUSA a large minority opposed to the errors of their church and many more who have themselves separated from ECUSA because of error. Therefore it is important to embrace these dioceses, churches and denominations within the Communion.

END.
