The Traditional Anglican Communion's College of Bishops is scheduled to meet in Portsmouth, England on Oct 1-5.
During the meeting, it is anticipated that a number of new provinces will be welcomed into the TAC and that the Revd Michael Gill will be consecrated as diocesan bishop of Southern Africa.
There will also be working groups on relations with other continuing churches, with Forward in Faith and with the Anglican Communion, as well as on the theological and spiritual formation of candidates for Holy Orders and the formation of newly elected bishops.
There will also be discussion about the conversations the TAC has been having with the Holy See.
Please keep Archbishop John Hepworth, his fellow bishops and all the clergy and laity of the TAC in your prayers, that the decisions taken may serve to strengthen the continuing Anglican movement, move toward the goal of greater unity of all Catholic Christians and, above all, be to the greater glory of God and to the building up of His Kingdom.
Archbishop Hepworth has promised to keep me abreast of major events that may occur during the meeting, beginning with his charge to the assembled bishops.
