Anglican Communion Alliance has digitized archival material from the Essentials Canada, spanning from 1994-2005. May this project be a blessing, and inspire us to continue our work of “deepening Biblical faith in the Anglican Church of Canada”!
In Canadian Anglicanism
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.
