Evangelical Anglicans in Wales are turning to the leaders of the theologically conservative global network, Gafcon, for support after the Church in Wales voted to bless same-sex relationships.

The Anglican Archbishops leading Gafcon, the Primates Council, have just met for two days at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi, Kenya.

The communique from the meeting touched on the situation in Wales.

“Faithful Christians in Wales who are heartbroken over their Province’s formal decision to bless same-sex marriages, reached out to the Primates Council following the unanimous decision of the Bench of Bishops in Wales to proceed with blessing same-sex marriages,” it said.

“The Gafcon Primates responded with encouragement and solidarity for the sake of the gospel.”

Gafcon chairman, Foley Beach, Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America, told conservative Anglicans in Wales: “We understand the decision to implement the blessing of same-sex marriages in your Province has been a significant disruption to the faith. It is important to say that you are not alone.

“As you discern your responses to the situation, you can be sure that we will stand with you in solidarity as you bear witness to the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
