An Appeal from the IAF

Bishop Andrew Mukuyamba has episcopal responsibility for all of the country of Zambia in south central Africa — the Continuing Anglican Church in Zambia (CACZ). Parishes have been established in three of the country’s ten provinces , the furthest one being 372 miles from the Bishop’s headquarters in the capital of Lusaka. A variety of issues negatively impact his ability to perform his duties:

  • Most CACZ churches are in rural areas.
  • In many cases, roads are mere dirt footpaths.
  • Public transportation is expensive and extremely unreliable.
  • Travel times necessary for pastoral care and visits are therefore unnecessarily long and wasteful.

The IAF Board of Directors has recommended that the Fellowship undertake a project to purchase an appropriate vehicle for the Bishop. To date, over $US 5800 has been contributed and earmarked for this purpose. The goal is to raise $16,000 before the end of August 2017. Vehicle maintenance, fuel, repairs , etc., will be funded by the CACZ. If you would like to participate, please send a check, payable to the: International Anglican Fellowship and earmarked “Bishop’s Vehicle” to:

The Most Reverend Shane Janzen was elected Primate of the world-wide Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) by its governing College of Bishops in Lincoln, England on Friday, October 14, 2016, and formally Installed as Primate at the Eucharist held Sunday morning at St. Katherine’s Cathedral Church in Lincoln.

The 57-year old Saanich, British Columbia resident is also Rector of the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Evangelist (990 Falmouth Road in Saanich) and Metropolitan of the Traditional Anglican Communion in Canada (The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada).

The Traditional Anglican Communion is an international communion of Anglican churches independent from the Canterbury Communion with parishes in Africa, Australia, the Torres Strait, Canada, Central and South America, England, India, Ireland, Scotland, and the United States.

Begun in 1977 and formally established in 1990 in Victoria, British Columbia, the TAC is a Christ-centred, Biblically-faithful church rooted in the traditional Anglican expression of the Christian Faith and the historic Book of Common Prayer.
