Resolution II.7


This Conference:

  1. calls upon the Member Churches of the Anglican Communion to address the processes of urbanisation across the world, both in our cities and all other communities;
  2. asks our Member Churches to give urgent attention to "Living and Proclaiming the Good News" in our cities so that all that destroys our full humanity is being challenged, the socially excluded are being welcomed and the poor are hearing the Good News (Matthew 11:3); and in order to assist this priority in mission
  3. resolves;
    1. to ask the Anglican Consultative Council to give support to the formation of an Anglican Urban Network to share information and experience on urbanisation and urban mission;
