GSE4 Update: 26th March

GSE4 Update: 26th March

For your prayers and info - Participants & Daily Programme:

To date, official provincial reps from 20 Provinces are confirmed coming. We also have other participants from various Provinces and Anglican groupings. Ecumenical observers will also be present. As with the Third Encounter, focus will be given to strengthening our commitment to the work and ministry of the Church, her Gospel witness, mission partnerships and economic empowerment needs. There will also be discussions on ways to strengthen the work amongst Global South Provinces. One major focus will be discussions around the Anglican Covenant process. A new Global South Primates Steering Committee will be appointed before the Conference ends.

Theme “The Gospel of Jesus Christ—Covenant for the People; Light for the Nations” (Isa 42.6, 49.6, 51.4, 52.13-53.12; Mt 26.26-29, 28.16-20; Jn 17.1-26) 

Mission: To Recover, Reform, Revitalising, and Restore Ourselves as Anglican Covenantal Community for Mission and Ministry in Jesus Christ. 

Objective:
1. To enable the covenanting Global South Provinces and Others to be an communion-accountable member of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. 
2. To develop Communion nature network, structures and processes to further our recovered mission and ministry. 
3. To develop and represent with other ecumenical bodies to strengthen the common mission and ministry for the global church of Christ.
4. To identify and nurture new generation to carry on the vocation of the Global South.
