Anglican primate downplays split call ahead of meeting Global Anglican Future Conference,

What you need to know:

  • When American churches started ordaining openly gay bishops in the last decade, with Gene Robinson being a prominent pioneer, the conservative members of the church — mostly from Africa and Asia — came together and formed the Global Anglican Future Conference (Gafcon), which seeks to uphold what they say are the true teachings of the Christian faith.
  • Back to recent suggestions, the Archbishop of Canterbury has summoned all of the 38 leaders of the national churches of the Anglican communion to a meeting in January, where he will propose that the communion be reorganised as a group of churches that are all linked to Canterbury but no longer necessarily to each other.

The Anglican Church of Kenya has distanced itself from claims that the global association of one of the largest Christian denominations could disintegrate at a crucial meeting next January.
