GAFCON has announced a new society within the Church of England dedicated to the encouragement of ”church planting and all forms of Christian witness in accord with the Jerusalem Statement of the GAFCON Conference in June 2008.”
This is an interesting thing. I wonder the extent of the overlap with other organisations, such as Church Army and other fellowships such as, perhaps, EFAC. The points of differentiation will evolve no doubt.
The following paragraph is also interesting:
The AMIE is determined to remain within the Church of England. The desire of those who identify with the society is to have an effective structure which enables them to remain in the Church of England and work as closely as possible with its institutions. Churches or individuals may join or affiliate themselves with the AMIE for a variety of reasons. Some may be churches in impaired communion with their diocesan bishop who require oversight. Others may be in good relations with their bishop but wish to identify with and support others.
Something to watch.
