"Global Centre" comes to the UK

InclusiveChurch is delighted to announce that the Most Revd Dr Idris Jones, Bishop of Glasgow & Galloway, has agreed to join the Archbishop of Mexico as a Patron of InclusiveChurch. Bishop Idris is Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church and a Primate of the Anglican Communion. He said
It is a privilege to be associated with Inclusive Church. The Anglican Communion is seeking how it may develop and deepen its life today - what better way could there be than working to keep our church as welcoming and encouraging to everyone who wants to follow Jesus so that everyone of us can be challenged by God's love.
We also announce that the Archbishop of Mexico, Bishop Carlos Touché-Porter, will be in England in September 2007. Bishop Carlos was a co-signatory of the Declaration by the Global Centre released in May 2007 which reaffirmed the call of Latin American bishops to preserve the "participative, diverse, ample and inclusive" nature of the Communion.

During his visit the Archbishop will take part in two major conferences.
  • Renewing our Vision – Anglicans and the Global Centre on Saturday 22nd September, at St Matthew’s, Westminster. 11.00 – 4.00 Cost £10.

  • Bishop Idris and Bishop Carlos will both speak at Celebrating Anglican Diversity on Sat 29th September, at Manchester Cathedral. 11.30 – 3.30 Cost £5.
Further information will follow. For advance registration please "Contact us" by going to www.inclusivechurch.net

These conferences will inform discussions at DRENCHED IN GRACE, InclusiveChurch’s first residential conference to be held in Derbyshire [England] on 21st – 23rd November. "Drenched in Grace" will be a celebration and restatement of broad and inclusive Anglicanism. A discount of £20 applies for bookings received before the end of June.
