Archbishop of Canterbury praises Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui

Publish Date: 06-May-2019

The Most Revd Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury; the Most Revd Paul Kwong, Archbishop of Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui and chairman of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC); The Most Revd Dr Josiah Idowu-Fearon, Secretary General of the ACC; and Canon Magaret Swinson, vice-chair of the ACC attended a press conference on 27 April, the day before the official opening of the 17th Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-17).

They expressed their wish to listen to the experience of delegates from different parts of the Anglican Communion, because they serve people from all strata of their society in different cultures. Although Christians around the world have different backgrounds and experiences, their common goal is to be disciple of Christ. Through many panels during the meeting, delegates could gain a better understanding of God’s work in different countries through the Church.

Archbishop Welby said “diversity does not make life more comfortable but it does reflect the reality of God’s gift to the Church.”

He hopes that the Anglican Communion can learn to love each other more deeply, serve the world more effectively, transform the society, serve the poor, care for the weak, and support those who are caught in crises.
