The Church of England is in danger of sleepwalking into a terrible mistake. We are urging the Church of England to sign up to the Anglican Communion Covenant. The Covenant is being promoted by the Archbishop of Canterbury to foster greater unity among Anglicans worldwide.
Haven't had a chance to read through the final version yet? Let us summarize it for you, and then you can print off a copy and enjoy!
Here are some compelling reasons why you should be actively supporting the Covenant in your parish, deanery and diocese.
Archbishop Rowan Williams on Why the Covenant Matters
The Covenant won’t solve all our problems, but it will express what a great many people in the Communion and outside need to hear: that we are answerable to one another; that we take each other fully seriously. And in terms of the Church of England, it means that we understand and accept that the Church of England is part of the Anglican family, not some special isolated little bit that doesn’t have to ask these questions.
Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
