In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

GAFCON 2013 Remembered

Just over a year after more than 1,300 leading Anglicans, including 331 bishops, gathered at All Saints Cathedral, Nairobi for GAFCON 2013, Archbishop Eliud Wabukala dedicated a commemorative plaque in All Saints’ Trinity Centre on All Saints Day, 1st November.

In his patronal festival sermon the Archbishop, who is Chairman of GAFCON, said ‘Gathered from different races and backgrounds from around the world, we experienced here a foretaste of heaven, that day when the redeemed from every tribe and language and people and nation shall worship before the throne of God’.

 Following the service, the congregation processed to the Trinity Centre in an act of thanksgiving for this historic gathering and the Archbishop dedicated the plaque ‘To the glory of God and as a sign of our solemn commitment to gospel partnership with faithful Anglicans throughout the world’.
