The Anglican Network in Europe is made up of two convocations, working in partnership to guard and herald biblical truth.
The term convocation simply means "gathering". Each convocation is a group of churches who are working together to proclaim the good news of Jesus for the glory of God. Each maintains its own character; field of operation; and has its own constitution, canons and synod.
The Anglican Convocation in Europe (ACE) exists to provide a home for historic orthodox biblical confessional Anglicans in Europe - regardless of churchmanship - expressing gospel generosity within the bounds of the Jerusalem Declaration.
Initially formed from churches who found a home within the Gafcon Missionary District for Europe provided by the Anglican Church in North America through the Anglican Network in Canada, ACE seeks to draw on their example by bringing together, under the authority of the Bible, faithful Anglicans, united in substance, yet diverse in expression, rooted in tradition, yet contemporary in practice.
The Anglican Mission in England (AMiE) is a fellowship of faithful Anglican churches committed to proclaiming Christ faithfully to the nations by planting, strengthening and partnering with other gospel-centred Christians for the salvation of many and the glory of God.
AMiE's prayerful ambition is to see the existence of 25 AMiE churches by 2025, and 250 by 2050. Secure in the grace of God, AMiE is committed to prayerfulness, evangelism, generosity, risk-taking, encouragement, excellence, and humility.
Initially recognised by Gafcon in its communiqué after the Nairobi conference in 2013 and affirmed in the Letter to the Churches that emerged from its 2018 conference in Jerusalem, AMiE is delighted to be one of the Founding Convocations of the Anglican Network in Europe.
