Anglican groups and organizations in solidarity with the GAFCON Jerusalem Statement and Declaration
In June 2008 the Global Anglican Future Conference took place within the context of a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
GAFCON was organized in response to the spread of wrongful theological teachings and practices within the Anglican Communion, demonstrated and symbolised by the ordination and consecration of people in active same-sex relationships and the formal blessing of same-sex unions, though by no means confined to these issues.
At the end of the Conference the Jerusalem Statement and Declaration were issued, which may be found here.
On the 1st July 2008, two meetings took place at All Souls Church, Langham Place, England, the first for incumbents and other church leaders in the Church of England, the second particularly for members of Parochial Church Councils.
Arising from this, it was decided that an online petition should be made available for individuals and groups such as PCCs to indicate to the wider Anglican community the degree of support there is for the GAFCON movement within England.
THIS IS THE PETITION FOR GROUPS AND ORGANIZATIONS, NOT INDIVIDUALS.
The petition should be signed by a responsible person, such as the organization Secretary, giving the name of the organization and the date on which the motion shown in the petition was passed.
The individual petition is here.
The organization named in this petition has passed the following motion on the date shown:
"We stand in solidarity with the Jerusalem Declaration and Statement on the Global Anglican Future."
