The chairman of GAFCON, the Most Rev Foley Beach, Primate of the Anglican Church in North America, was in Pakistan this week meeting with leaders of the Church of Pakistan and the National Council of Churches of Pakistan.

Speaking at a pastors’ conference on Wednesday, Dr. Beach thanked the Moderator of the Church of Pakistan, the Rt. Rev. Humphrey Peters and the president of the NCCP, the Rt. Rev Asad Marshall, Bishop of Raiwind, for the invitation to address the gathering.

According to an account of the meeting published by Pakistan Today, Dr. Beach said he was pleased to be “part of this gathering in Lahore which is interdenominational and well attended by church leaders from across the country.”

He endorsed the work of the National Council of Churches in Pakistan and its vision of uniting pastors “on a united platform to defend the orthodox biblical faith against the onslaught of heretical and liberal teachings,” the newspaper said.
