Weekly SNAC, 3 June 2018 - Global Anglican Futures Conference (GAFCON)

Please be praying for the upcoming GAFCON conference in Jerusalem from 17-22 June. This is a coming together of worldwide Anglican leaders who wish to maintain Biblical orthodoxy within the Anglican Church. The Sydney Diocese and especially our former Archbishop Peter Jensen and current Archbishop Glenn Davies have played an important role in this movement. Please be praying for the upcoming GAFCON conference in Jerusalem from 17-22 June.

As Phil shared at the Big Day Out, he will be attending as one of the representatives of our Diocese at this conference. The Parish Council believes that this is a wonderful opportunity for Phil and a way that our parish can support the wider church in a tangible way. In that light we have encouraged Phil to attend, agreeing to support him in so doing. However, this will cost around $4,000. If you would like to support Phil attending the conference please feel free to make a contribution marked ‘GAFCON’ for this purpose. Please also pray for James Flavin who will be attending as a lay representative.  

After GAFCON the Colgan family will be taking some Long Service Leave until 22 July. Please pray that this will be a good time of rest and recharging. During that period Jason Veitch will be the acting Senior Minister.
