SE Asia breaks with C of E diocese over gay advocacy

Jul 11, 2018 by

From Anglican Ink [Anglican Province in the far east will not renew partnership agreement with Diocese of Lichfield, after concerns about ‘departure from orthodoxy’.]
To all clergy and licensed lay ministers in the Diocese of Lichfield:
Intentional Discipleship: East Meets West.
Many of you will be aware of   and hopefully attending our ‘Intentional Discipleship: East Meets West’ event across the Diocese from 11-15 July. We would like to update you about some developments concerning the gatherings for your information. We have enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the Province of South East Asia and were very much looking forward to welcoming all four of its dioceses: West Malaysia, Kuching, Singapore and Sabah, to the event, which was due to culminate in the renewal of our partnership agreements with each diocese. However, we are sad that the four dioceses have now informed us that they will not renew the partnership agreements, and that Singapore and Sabah dioceses have decided to withdraw their participation from the whole event. This is because they have concerns about our recent ad clerum on Welcoming and Honouring LGBT+ People. We respect their decision and their concerns which are held with integrity.
