ANGLICAN CHURCH IN AMERICA SYNOD VOTES TO SUPPORT CREATION OF GLOBAL CHURCH

The Anglican Church in America Executive Council and national church delegates meeting in Synod in Atlanta, Georgia have ratified the decision to change the Traditional Anglican Communion to the Traditional Anglican Church, part of Christ’s One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. The TAC is a worldwide federation of national churches within the historic Anglican tradition. The Anglican Church in America is one of those national churches. The vote follows ratification by the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada in 2019. This decision changes the TAC from a communion of national churches to one global church. The ACA will be a Province of this global church. National Church bodies within the TAC from all over the world are in a similar process of approving this change.

The Traditional Anglican Church will consist of nine Provinces: The Anglican Catholic Church in Australia; The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada; The Anglican Church in America; The Anglican Church of India; The Province of the Anglican Church in Latin America; The Province of Africa of the Traditional Anglican Church; The Church of Ireland (Traditional Rite); The Traditional Anglican Church in Britain; and The Church of Torres Strait.

A Primate will govern the international church, together with a General Synod consisting ofa House of Bishops, a House of Clergy, and a House of Laity, representing each diocese within the TAC. This also expands the efforts of the TAC to seek unity with other similar traditional church bodies. This is also inclusive of our efforts to continue the strengthening of the intercommunion relationship with the G4 jurisdictions which includes the Anglican Church in America, the Anglican Catholic Church, Anglican Province of America, and Diocese of the Holy Cross.
