Anglican Perspectives

Uganda Joins the Global South

The Rev. Cn. Phil Ashey received a written request from the Archbishop of Uganda, the Most Rev. Dr. Stephen Kaziimba, to address the House of Bishops of Uganda on the Global South Fellowship of Anglicans’ (GSFA) Cairo Covenant (2019).  On Tuesday January 16th, he presented on the crisis of false teaching and lack of discipline within the Anglican Communion for over 50 years and “the way forward” through a covenanted and confessional communion of Anglican Churches. It was a great day of teaching, discussion, and fellowship on the strategic significance of the Covenant for establishing a biblically-faithful Communion within the historic Anglican Communion to help return the Church to its biblical and apostolic roots.

Following the day’s presentations, the Archbishop and Bishops of the Church of Uganda formally convened and voted unanimously to apply for membership in the GSFA Covenantal Structures (The Cairo Covenant 2019).  The Archbishop and Bishops of Uganda represent 37 dioceses and approximately 11 million Anglicans, the second largest national church within the Anglican Communion.  Their unanimous decision was ratified on the 14th of February.
