To the Anglicans of Great Britain

FCE Bishops sign letter ‘To the Anglicans of Great Britain’

Bishops Fenwick, Hunt and Rossello were among 22 signatories of an open letter addressed ‘To the Anglicans of Great Britain’. The letter was occasioned by a number of developments at the July General Synod of the Church of England regarding the defence of the uniqueness of Christ, and gender issues. In response Primus circulated those who had attended the Anglican Unity Forum hosted by the FCE on 8th June. The consensus was that an open letter would be appropriate.

Those signing include representatives of GAFCON UK, AMiE, Jesmond and Anglicans in Wales and Scotland.

The letter makes public the fact that a meeting has already taken place ‘to discuss how to ensure a faithful ecclesial future’ and announces that a further meeting is planned for October.

Following the publication of the letter Primus released a Press Statement reinforcing the aims of the gatherings and pointing out that the concept of an alternative Anglican jurisdiction already exists in the FCE. He stressed that ‘leavers’ and ‘remainers’ are ‘committed to working together to ensure the continuation of orthodox Anglican jurisdictions. The precise form those jurisdictions might take is one of the areas of discussion. The priority is to ensure that they enable the proclamation of the biblical Gospel within the Anglican patrimony.’

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.

George Whitefield

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.
