Anglican Update

Posted 17 Dec 2019

The new Archbishop of York has been announced.

It has been announced this morning that the new Archbishop of York will be Stephen Cottrell, currently Bishop of Chelmsford.

Stephen Cottrell is the President of Affirming Catholicism, an organisation which is “seeking to bring together and strengthen lay and ordained people who recognize the positive, inclusive and joyful currents in the Catholic tradition of Christianity.” Among other things, they are seeking to allow same sex marriage and the ministry of people in same sex relationships within the Church of England.

Clergy from Chelmsford diocese expressed serious concerns about Bishop Stephen’s approach to disagreements around gender and sexuality earlier this year.

Please pray today that this appointment would not pave the way for such changes to be made. Pray too for the appointment of a faithful gospel minister as the new Bishop of Chelmsford.
