Why we think you should
support the covenant...
... because its the only game in town...
The Covenant is ‘the only game in town’ if the Church of England is to remain in any meaningful sense apart of the third largest world church. There is no alternative. So the Church of England’s choices are to adopt the Covenant, or to disappear from the world's radar as a significant voice in the world.
and wants to be held together...
Many of those who have already adopted the Covenant are poor parts of the world, to whom those links are especially important. E.g. Papua New Guinea in adopting it said they were ‘proud to be Anglican’. If we reject the Covenant, it will send out the message that we don’t think we need them.
