The Task Group set up after the Primates’ Gathering and Meeting in January to “maintain conversation” has met for the first time….
The Primates asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to appoint the group to restore relationships, rebuild mutual trust, heal the legacy of hurt and explore deep differences. Archbishop Welby presented the group’s mandate to ACC16 in Lusaka in April where it was received and affirmed. This week seven members of the group have been meeting in London. An eighth joined in via video conferencing.
Among the members of the task group are the Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of the Episcopal Church, Coadjutor Bishop Linda Nicholls of Huron in Canada, Archbishop Ian Ernest of the Province of the Indian Ocean, the Moderator of the Church of Bangladesh, Bishop Sarker, and Canon Rosemary Mbogo, the Provincial Secretary of the Anglican Church of Kenya.
