Global South Primates agree to Welby meeting

From The Church Times-

THE GAFCON Primates have accepted the Archbishop of Canterbury’s invitation to meet in January.

A communiqué issued by the Global South Primates after a meeting in Cairo last week also welcomed Archbishop Welby’s invitation to the Primates to set the agenda for the meeting as a “very helpful approach”. They have agreed on the agenda items they wish to request.

A GAFCON spokesman confirmed on Monday that the communiqué meant that its Primates had agreed to attend. The group had previously advised Archbishop Welby that it would not attend any meeting at which the Episcopal Church (TEC) in the United States or the Anglican Church of Canada were represented. But the decision by the Archbishop to invite the Primate of the Anglican Church in North America, Dr Foley Beach, has met one of their criteria for attendance.
