Two thousand Anglicans are expected to converge in Jerusalem from more than 50 countries. The conference theme is “Proclaiming Christ Faithfully to the Nations” and runs from 17th – 22nd June
GAFCON was established in 2008 in Jerusalem and celebrates ten years of Anglicans walking together based on a common confession of the faith articulated in the Jerusalem Declaration.
Archbishop Stanley said GAFCON is the best hope for Anglicans around the world to walk together in a way that brings genuine transformation to people’s lives, families, and communities.”
During the meeting, the GAFCON movement will launch a number of global networks focused on deepening partnerships and making them relevant in a variety of local contexts.
