Today is the kick off of the S4J year that runs from 1 August 2017 to 31 July 2018. Today two important announcements were made:
Archbishop of Canterbury declares Sudan new Anglican province
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby on Sunday (30 July 2017) declared Sudan the 39th province of the worldwide Anglican Communion, six years after the predominantly Christian south gained independence from the north.
Welby said that creating a 39th Anglican province with its own Khartoum-based archbishop was a “new beginning” for Christians in Sudan.
