Our Bishop Diocesan Atteding The Anglican Consultative Council Meeting
The ACC meets every two or three years and its present policy is to meet in different parts of the world. Since it began there have been fifteen meetings of the Council. The last meeting ACC-15 was held in Auckland New Zealand from 27th October and 7th November 2012. ACC-16 is taking place in Lusaka, Zambia between 8-19 April 2016.
The role of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) is to facilitate the co-operative work of the churches of the Anglican Communion, exchange information between the Provinces and churches, and help to co-ordinate common action. It advises on the organization and structures of the Communion, and seeks to develop common policies with respect to the world mission of the Church, including ecumenical matters.
Please keep Bishop Douglas in your prayers.
ACC members outline issues facing the world
"Council members had been asked to arrive in Lusaka prepared to discuss the crucial issues facing their provinces and churches. They were also asked in advance to consider the shape of discipleship in their provinces in the context of the Five Marks of Mission and what it means to live in a world of differences."
