GAFCON IV Plans Taking Shape

GAFCON IV Plans Taking Shape

Gathering in Kigali, Rwanda in April 2023

Preparations are being made for the next GAFCON gathering in 2023.  The General Secretary of GAFCON, Archbishop Ben Kwashi announced the theme as, “To Whom Shall We Go?”  

GAFCON IV will take place in Kigali, Rwanda April 17-21 2023.

In his statement announcing the gathering, Kwashi said, “As the worldwide church moves into the 2020s, there is increasing pressure to look for life’s answers in many places; there are certainly many voices offering suggestions to us as individuals and as a church.  But to whom should we go?  Firstly, we should go to Jesus, as He is revealed to us in God’s Word, the Bible, not picking and choosing hte bits that suit our purposes or that help us to fit comfortably into our society.  We should go to Jesus, as revealed in God’s unchanging, inspired Word to us, “ …which is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives.  It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right” (2 Tim 3:16 NLT).  We should then go to the Church, to encourage each other with God’s Word, to live and grow with our fellow brothers and sisters, under God’s direction.  Finally, we are to go to the World, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

The venue chosen in the Rwandan capital will hold 2,600 delegates.

GAFCON Operations Manager, the Revd Canon Daniel Willis and Conference Manager, Paul Mirrington recently travelled from New South Wales, Australia to Kigali to meet with their planning counterparts in the host city.  

Archbishop Laurent Mbanda, Mariam Ukase, Erica Mbanda and the Revd Nathan Matahutu head up the efforts in Kigali.
