Archbishop Eliud Wabukala of Kenya
The Emmanuel Centre, Marsham Street London became the venue for a conference of the Primates Council of FCA International, April 26th 2012. The Invitation only event was attended by Bishops and other leaders of the Anglican Communion from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Australasia in a celebration of the unity and experience of the Gospel.
This was a opportunity for the Anglican church to stand united against the challenges it is facing. The event was designed with a specific purpose to enhance partnerships amongst churches.
At the event Mr Michael Abel of People International based in Lahore spoke of the increasing persecution of Christians living there.
Wilson Chowdhry who attended said;
"For me this was a chance to join with the Anglican community and highlight the suffering of Pakistani Christians. The event was well organised and the foyer to the main hall offered a good opportunity to network and establish new productive links with wider groups. Hopefully seeds have been sown that will coordinate a more joined up approach, in tackling the persecution faced by many Christians living in the Islamic world."
