Nelson Diocese and GAFCON

From the 2008 Synod session of the Diocese of Nelson in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia:

That this Synod, acknowledging continuing developments in the Anglican
Communion in response to issues on biblical orthodoxy:

(a) notes the holding of the Global Anglican Future Conference in
Jerusalem in June 2008

(b) receives the final statement of the conference which includes
within it the Jerusalem Declaration (appended to the motion)

(c) commends the statement to the Diocese for general study and reflection

(d) confirms the Diocese of Nelson upholds the orthodox faith and practice of the Anglican Church as represented in the Jerusalem Declaration and continues to look for ways to be in relationship with those represented at GAFCON
