Newcastle Bishop disassociates himself with GAFCON


[Christianity Today UK] 29 Jan 2008--The Anglican Newcastle Bishop, The Right Reverend Dr Brian Farran, has disassociated himself from the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON), describing it as a one-dimensional conference designed to ‘cause embarrassment,’ whether intended or not, to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, and to the rest of the Anglican Communion.

Dr. Farran declared that GAFCON is a theological politically conference designed to act as a ‘counter-conference’ to the 2008 Lambeth Conference and has the potential to damage or lessen the moral authority of it.
