The churches of St John’s Knutsford and St John’s Toft were represented by Rev Dan Young at this important conference held in Nairobi, Kenya, 21-26 October 2013. The Conference, the second of its kind, was organised to provide an occasion for discussing the future of the Anglican church worldwide, particularly in view of the pressures in every province to conform to a secular agenda, and consequently to abandon scriptural truth and Anglican tradition.
The Nairobi Communique is the official summary of the resolutions of the Conference – and it is regarded as a remarkable statement of Christian unity and doctrinal clarity given the wide backgrounds of the 1300+ delegates from dozens of countries around the world. It is a powerful demonstration of what biblically-faithful gospel partnership might look like for churches like St John’s that face an uncertain future in a rapidly changing Church of England.
