It is not practical for Aotearoa/New Zealand Anglicans to travel to England. However we can join with you in prayer. The Cathedral church of St Peter, Hamilton, New Zealand, invites Anglicans of all streams, (Tikanga) to gather in the Cathedral at 5 pm on the 15th of October and Pray for our Primate, John, and for gathered Primates in the UK, together with The Archbishop of Canterbury, as they meet on this historic occasion. We pray for love, Aroha, wisdom, grace and understanding, that God's wish for the Anglican Communion will be done.

I shall be praying earnestly and intensely for an inclusive Church. In fact I have been praying daily for months and months if not years for a Church that can offer the love of our Lord to all and end discrimination to all sectors of our society.
