GAFCON Kigali conference postponed over COVID-19


Due to the current global threat of the spread of the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, the Primates of the Global Anglican Future Conference (Gafcon) have decided to postpone the Kigali Bishops and Wives Conference that was scheduled for June in Kigali, Rwanda. Over 300 bishops and their wives were expected to attend the conference.

“Out of love and care for our brothers and sisters, and our commitment to provide a safe environment for attendees and honor the Lord Jesus, we believe it is best to postpone the conference at this time,” Archbishop Foley Beach, Chair of the Primates Council, said.

General Secretary, Archbishop Ben Kwashi, added: “May the Gospel prosper and save many more than we can ever think or imagine. Out of all of this, God has not abandoned his work. He will continue to work his purposes out until the Word of the Lord covers the earth as the waters cover the sea.”

No date has been set at this time for the reschedule of the conference.
