From the Anglican Communion Office
Sharing mission and evangelism resources, capacity-building, issuing news and information, and faciliating a major pan-Anglican meeting were just some of the ways the Anglican Communion Office supported Member Churches last year.
According to its Annual Review 2012 , ACO staff members – who hail from countries including Japan, Jamaica, Colombia and Ireland – worked for the Anglican Communion in a range of areas. These included development, relief and advocacy; communications, theology, mission and evangelism, and ecumenism.
The main focus of the year, however, was the 15th Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Auckland, New Zealand.
Writing in the foreword to the Annual Review 2012 Secretary General of the Anglican Communion Canon Kenneth Kearon noted, "This was no small event: more than 100 delegates and guests met at Auckland's Holy Trinity Cathedral for ten days of prayer, worship, fellowship and Anglican Communion business".
Director for Communications at the ACO Jan Butter said the Annual Review had an important role to play in reporting back to Anglicans and Episcopalians around the world, "Most of the funding that allows us to do our work comes from Communion provinces," he said. "Member Churches entrust us with facilitating the global-level collaboration and meeting that are crucial to our global communion.
"This publication lets people clearly see what we're doing on their behalf."
