Statement on the appointment of Andy Lines from the English conservative evangelical group
Reform welcomes the announcement that Revd Canon Andy Lines has been chosen by the GAFCON Primates to be a Missionary Bishop to Europe.
Revd Canon Lines has worked tirelessly for many years to offer biblically faithful pastoral ministry to members of Reform through his work at Crosslinks and with the Anglican Mission in England. We look forward to continuing to work in close partnership with him and ACNA as he takes on this new role.
“The Church has great news to offer the world but sadly it is being drowned out by those who have lost confidence in God’s desire and ability to speak to us through the Bible,” said Susie Leafe, Director of Reform*. “We need leaders with that confidence and our prayer is that the appointment of Revd Canon Lines to this role will encourage faithful Anglicans in Scotland and across Europe to know they are not alone and give them confidence to proclaim the wonder of God’s saving and transforming grace through Jesus Christ alone.”
