Nairobi Governor Welcomes GAFCON

Nairobi Governor Dr. Evans Kidero has welcomed the staging of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) in October. Dr. Kidero pledged his assistance and support for the week-long meeting of Anglican leaders and lay people to be held at All Saints Cathedral in October.

A delegation led by Bishop Martyn Minns, one of the conference organisers, met the governor to inform him of the plans to bring over 1,000 delegates to the Kenyan capital for what Archbishop Eliud Wabukala describes as an assembly ""to listen to God, to pray, to deliberate, and to plan about the Anglican future, seeing it as a great spiritual and missionary fellowship, energised by the defence and proclamation of the gospel."

GAFCON and its Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans is a world-wide movement of provinces, dioceses, churches, organisations and individual Anglican Christians whose goal is to help reform, heal and revitalise the Anglican Communion and expand its mission to the world.

We confess the faith of Christ crucified, stand firm for the gospel in the global and Anglican context, and affirm the Jerusalem statement and Declaration, to guide the movement for the future.
