Church of England parishes consider first step to break away over sexuality
A group of parishes is preparing what could be the first step towards a formal split in the Church of England over issues such as homosexuality, with the creation of a new â€śshadow synodâ€ť vowing to uphold traditional teaching.
Representatives of almost a dozen congregations in the Home Counties are due to gather in a church hall in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, later this week for the first session of what they say could eventually develop into an alternative Anglican church in England.
Organisers, drawn from the conservative evangelical wing of Anglicanism, say they have no immediate plans to break away - but are setting up the â€śembryonicâ€ť structures that could be used to do so if the established church moves further in what they see as a liberal direction....
Yep, good old alcoholic sodomite Gene Robinson. He's quite a character, before his ordination he was screaming how the sodomite's were going to take over America, bet you didn't know he was the Devils prophet, too.
""If senior leaders of the Church of England water down the teaching of the Church of England on key issues like homosexuality, then this synod could easily evolve in to a new Anglican jurisdiction in England."
There already is OTHER Church of England groups in England and the USA. These moved out of the main CofE when women were ordained. It is good to hear that some of the people are paying attention to the heretical errors and reacting to them.
Quote: "The Church of England (Continuing) was formed in 1994, soon after the Anglican Church began to ordain women. It is now thought to have about 300 members in five congregations. It is one of dozens of Anglican congregations outside the mainstream Church of England which have no formal relationship with the Archbishop of Canterbury. They exist mostly in the US and the UK, and claim to be 'continuing' the old traditions.
The Church (Continuing) is founded on: â€˘ the Authorised Version of the Bible, â€˘ the Book of Common Prayer 1662, â€˘ and the 39 Articles of Religion."
Oh! And there is the 'Free Church of England.' http://fcofe.org.uk/
