Illuminating Orthodoxy

In Canadian Anglicanism

Our Vision is to be a theological and spiritual rallying point for historic Christian orthodoxy in the Anglican Church of Canada.

The Anglican Communion Alliance is a national organization representing Canadian Anglicans, coast to coast to coast. We have grown out of the grassroots response of Anglicans to the crisis that has been developing in our church over the past 50 years.

The ACA endeavors to be a rallying place for faithful Canadian Anglicans who want to see the Anglican Church of Canada embrace and live by the principles of its own constitution as set forth in the Solemn Declaration of 1893, and clarified in the Montreal Declaration of Anglican Essentials of 1994. We are striving to assist the efforts of all Anglicans in this country who wish to see their church remain in full membership with the global Anglican Communion. To that end, we support the Anglican Covenant and urge our church to endorse it and pattern our relationships with other Anglicans by it.

While being organizationally separate from the orthodox in other Anglican jurisdictions in Canada, we continue in informal fellowship with them in the cause of the Gospel while addressing the specific situation within our own Anglican Church of Canada.

Renumber paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 as paragraphs 3, 4 and 5, and add as paragraph 2:

Add the following at the end of the Preface to Canon XXI:

9. Faithful members of the Anglican Church of Canada have different understandings and teachings about the nature of marriage. Some accept that the essence of marriage is between a man and a woman; others accept same sex marriage. Members are entitled to hold, teach and exercise either view provided they recognize and respect that others may with integrity hold, teach and exercise a different view. All Anglicans accept that marriage is a sign of God’s redeeming purpose to unite all things in Christ. We are committed to graceful walking together in a spirit of generosity as part of the same Christian community.

10. General Synod recognizes that Indigenous communities have particular understandings about the nature of marriage as well as their own ways of making decisions—both of which are protected in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples—and will continue to discern whether same sex marriage would be acceptable in their communities.
