Inspires features visit to Anglican event in Ghana

February 28, 2023

The latest edition of Inspires Online, the monthly magazine of the Scottish Episcopal Church, reports on the Scottish Episcopal Church’s involvement in the recent 18th session of the Anglican Consultative Council.

The Rev Lee Johnston, Diocese of Glasgow & Galloway, and Alistair Dinnie, a member of St John’s, Princes Street, Edinburgh, attended the event in Ghana as SEC representatives, and they were joined in Ghana’s capital Accra by Amie Byers, another SEC member, who is the youth representative of the Europe region.

In Inspires, Alistair reflects on what was experienced and achieved at the conference.

This month’s edition also features the launch of the draft Net Zero Action Plan plus details of the next Consultation webinar on 9 March.

There is an account of the Primus’ recent visit to a human trafficking consultation gathering, news of possible developments on mission priorities in the report from February’s meeting of the Provincial Mission Board, tributes to former Diocesan Chancellor Sheriff Sandy Wilkinson, news of a prestigious award for Bishop Keith Riglin, a report from a very lively Provincial Youth Sleepover, a flavour of news from each Diocese – including a remarkable ‘Hymnathon’ in the Diocese of Brechin – and details of various forthcoming events and webinar series.
