Church Society welcomes Primates’ proposals

We were greatly encouraged by the communiqué issued following the meeting of the Global Primates in Kigali, Rwanda which ended yesterday.

We recognise that once again when their own provinces are faced by many grave problems they have given valuable time to the conflicts which are tearing apart the Anglican churches in the Global North.

We welcome their clear signal that the Episcopal Church of the United States and the Anglican Church of Canada have effectively put themselves out of the Anglican Communion and that steps should now be taken to encourage and formally recognise those groups and Dioceses which have taken their stand against the errors which ECUSA and ACIC have espoused.

We note the Primates’ commitment to the Anglican Covenant and hope that if this goes ahead it can be made an effective tool in promoting doctrinal and moral orthodoxy throughout the Communion, and including in England, without damaging the nature of the Communion.

We commit ourselves to continued prayer for the Primates of the Communion as they prepare for their important meeting in February 2007.
