Anglicans For Life (AFL) is the only global Anglican ministry dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia through ministry, education, pastoral care, and biblical advocacy in partnership with churches in the Anglican Communion.
In January, AFL is taking one of the biggest steps it’s made in more than 25 years. The ministry will livestream its annual Summit on January 16 and 23. For the first time ever, every single Anglican with an internet connection can access the Summit's life-changing, life-affirming training.
Summit 2021 features outstanding keynote speakers and workshop leaders, equipping attendees with Life-Affirming teaching and ministry inspiration.
SUMMIT 2021 takes place on two consecutive Saturdays in January, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST.
We've received wonderful news that our companion diocese, the Diocese of Kigezi in Uganda, has received the donation we gathered and has started using it to rebuild after the flooding and other struggles they've faced this year. Thank you so much again to everyone who contributed, and thanks be to God!
Last week, St. Martin of Tours' Anglican Church in Fresno lost their church buildings to a fire. On Sunday, Bishop Eric and the clergy and laity of neighboring churches came together for a Eucharist asking God to work and support the people of St. Martin's at this time. Please join us in keeping them in prayer.
O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquility the plan of salvation; let the whole world see and know that things which were cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new, and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
