Gafcon is a prophetic movement, putting the Bible back at the heart of the Anglican Communion, but above all it is a spiritual movement and I am delighted to introduce a weekday devotional 'Lift Up Your Hearts'. These devotionals will greatly enrich our common life and I urge you to share them widely!

From Wednesday July 1 Bishop Michael Nazir Ali will be writing the devotions, which will follow along with the scripture readings from the Church of England and those who are remembered on those days throughout the month of July. We are privileged because Bishop Michael brings a refreshing insight into languages and cultural backgrounds from the East, and a deep insight into scriptures. You can watch a live interview with him here.
