The church calls upon the nation to unite for a better future

The Archbishop, Bishops, Clergy and the Laity representing the Anglican Church of Kenya meeting at the All Saints' Cathedral Multi-Purpose Hall on the 2 nd and 3 rd March, 2011, deliberated on the desired future of the Anglican Church and the nation at large. We meditated on Jeremiah 29:11 where God assures His people: “For I know the plans I have for you...plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future...”

After some deep reflections and open discussions, the Church decided to rally around the theme: TOGETHER FOR CHRIST in this decade (2011-2020).The Church observes that the implementation of the National Constitution is a priority that must be put above political campaigns for 2012 general elections, thus a call for the politicians to work towards ensuring an equitable distribution of resources and the strengthening of institutions that will ensure good governance. They also urged the two Principals to rise above personal interests and focus on national issues by ensuring continuous and meaningful consultations. Additionally, they called upon all public servants implicated and charged with corruption, impropriety, neglect, abuse of office or any other scandal must step aside.

Meanwhile, the the church purposes to actively participate in the ongoing education debate and engaging intentionally in programs that will address peace building and conflict management with a deliberate focus on the youth. In the consulation, the church resolved with the theme: "Together For Christ," for the next decade (2011- 2020). A press release and communique was disseminated calling the nation to focus on the priority issues of national cohesion and implementation of the new constitution.
