Anti-Covenant group

07 July 2011

by Ed Beavan

THE former Bishop of Lincoln, Dr John Saxbee, and the former Bishop of Worcester, Dr Peter Selby, have been appointed episcopal patrons of the international No Anglican Coven­ant Coalition. Both Bishops oppose the proposed Coven­ant.

The coalition is made up of mem­bers of the Anglican Communion across the globe who fear that the Covenant would change the funda­mental nature of Anglicanism, and would create “a monolithic, world­wide Church unresponsive to local needs, narrow in its theological outlook, and governed exclusively by bishops most of us will never see”.
