On October 18-20, Bishop Bill met with two other bishops of the ACNA to strategize on our mission together in Connecticut. The Rt. Rev. Julian Dobbs, bishop of CANA East, and The Rt. Rev. Steve Breedlove, bishop of the Diocese of Christ our Hope, got together with Bishop Bill to pray, discuss, and plan for God’s goal of bringing the love of Jesus Christ to New England and to grow vibrant worshipping communities in the Anglican way. During those three days, all ACNA clergy in the area who could attend came to a one day meeting to build unity and continued strategy among them.
We currently have two Connecticut churches in our diocese: All Nations Christian Church, New Haven, and New Hope Anglican Mission, Oakville. There is also the ministry of Jim and Lisa Leach, called the Spirit Wind Center in Mystic, CT. Two emerging Chinese mission initiatives, under the leadership of The Rev. Dr. Abraham Chan, will also begin over the next year in Hartford and New Haven.
Please keep our Connecticut churches and ministries, as well as the ministries of all ACNA initiatives, in your prayers.
