IASCER - Inter Anglican Standing Commission on Ecumenical Relations

The Inter Anglican Standing Commission on Ecumenical Relations was established by the Anglican Consultative Council in response to a request from the bishops gathered at the Lambeth Conference in 1998. Its purpose is to monitor the progress of ecumenical affairs in the Anglican Communion, and to offer such support and advice as is requested by provinces in their ecumenical affairs. Its two chief concerns are to encourage "best practice" in the ecumenical initiatives undertaken within provinces, and to ensure that in bilateral dialogues with other partners there is consistency between the Agreed Statements developed. The Commission meets annually, under the chairmanship of the Archbishop of the West Indies, the Most Revd Drexel Gomez.
