Individuals living outside England 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, and should be read before signing this petition.
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 for groups such as PCCs to indicate to the wider Anglican community the degree of support there is for the GAFCON movement within England.
Given that a number of signatories to the first petition were from outside England, it has been decided to add this third petition specifically for any other members of the Global Anglican Communion who wish to sign.
Residents of England who wish to sign the petition should NOT sign this petition but go here.
I stand in solidarity with the Jerusalem Declaration and Statement on the Global Anglican Future.
