Global South Anglican conference cancelled

The Sixth Anglican South to South Conference scheduled to begin today in Tunisia has been cancelled. On 10 Oct 2015 organizers of the meeting called by the Archbishop of the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East, the Most Rev. Mouneer Anis, stated the meeting organized round the theme of “How Africa shaped our Christian mind” that was set to begin on 12 Oct would not take place. A statement explaining the reasons for the cancellation and the date and place of the next gathering would be released shortly, organizers said. On 21 June 2015 Dr. Anis invited selected primates from the Anglican Communion’s African, Asian and South American churches to bring a team of seven, including a youth delegate to the 12 – 18 October 2015 meeting in Carthage. The announcement stated: “Members of the Anglican Communion will have the opportunity to learn from the richness of the North African Church. Do pray that the time spent together may be a source of blessing to and encourage Anglicans to run the race set before us.” The Sixth Global South Conference was scheduled five years after the Fifth meeting held in Singapore in April 2010 under the theme of “The Gospel of Jesus Christ – Covenant for the People, Light for the Nations.”
