Commendations

Revd Vaughan Roberts

Rector of St Ebbes Oxford & Director of the Proclamation Trust

At a time when the essentials of our faith are challenged from both outside and inside the
church, it is vital that Anglicans from different traditions, who share the same foundational
commitments, find one another and work together. I pray that Anglican Essentials Wales
will be used by God, not only to defend the faith when it is under attack, but also to spur its
members on to proclaim the Gospel of Christ to our needy world.

Rt Revd Keith Sinclair

Bishop of Birkenhead

I warmly commend the Anglican Essentials Wales conference Missional Anglicanism and
wish I could come myself! Last year speaking to the Evangelical Fellowship in the Church
in Wales was a great personal encouragement to me and I am sure this conference will
also bless and benefit all who are able to go. Jesus came as the one full of grace and
truth, I believe we should take every opportunity we have to grow in that grace and truth as
we witness to him, and I am sure this conference will contribute significantly to that growth
for all who can attend in Wales and beyond.

Revd Rachel Marszalek

Vicar of All Saints Ealing, General Secretary of Fulcrum & New Wine Women Representative for London and the West

It is the Holy Spirit who will re-energise and re-invigorate life and ministry across the
country of Wales. The church which moves with the times will shrink but the church which
moves with the Spirit will flourish. The history of revival movements in Wales proves this to
be the case. In concentrating on the essentials at the heart of the Christian faith and
celebrating the unique sufficiency of Christ's saving work, Anglican Essentials Wales is
seeking to serve the purposes of a Holy God who comes to seek and save the lost. I pray
God uses this movement so that he might move in power across Wales.”

Revd Dr Ian Paul

Former Dean of Studies at St John’s Nottingham & as Psephizo the Winner Premier Digital Awards Blogger of the Year 2017 & 2018

There are many things happening in the church in these islands about which we can be
excited and thankful—planting of new congregations, mission initiatives bringing many to
faith, a rediscovery of the power of prayer. But at the same time there are worrying signs of
church leaders letting go of our inheritance of faith and loss of understanding of and
confidence in the Scriptures. I warmly commend this new initiative, and hope and pray that
it will bring new life and strength to the Church in Wales.”

Revd Simon Ponsonby

Pastor of Theology at St Aldate’s, Oxford and Author

Today in Wales, the home of my father and ancestors who met Jesus there, God is stirring
the hearts of his faithful who understand the times - he is calling them together, calling
them to pray, calling them to his Word, calling them to stand firm on the faith, and calling
them to give away the good news of Jesus in Wales. May God bless and use the Anglican
Essentials Wales to build Jesus' Church.

Our Next Conference

Missional Anglicanism

In the rapidly changing culture of Wales, where the Christian Church has moved from central to sidelined in half a lifetime, Christians need to present the unchanging gospel of a Saviour who is the same yesterday, today and forever. How should the Church in Wales attempt this task?  What should change and what shouldn’t?  This will be the focus of our 2019 conference on Missional Anglicanism.
