Southern Diocese joins GAFCON UK

At its meeting on 11th March, the Synod of the Southern Diocese of the Free Church of England voted to affiliate with GAFCON UK, the follow up to the Global Anglican Future Conference held in Jerusalem in 2008. The Northern Diocese had already done so some time earlier.

The Free Church of England’s affiliation with this movement to defend orthodox Anglicanism is very much in line with the vision of our founding fathers in the 19th century.

GAFCON UK is the UK branch of the GAFCON movement around the world. GAFCON UK, the home of broad-based, Jesus-centered, biblically orthodox Anglicanism in Britain, and the connection to the GAFCON movement worldwide.

GAFCON UK exists as a broad-based fellowship for all faithful Anglicans in Britain who agree with the Jerusalem Declaration and who share a vision for a global Anglican future.


God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you. Fight the good fight of faith, and God will give you spiritual mercies.

It is also our apostolic mission to enable all our people to develop into effective ambassadors of Christ in the Church and in the world.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
