The full document is available in pdf for free download here and hard copies are being sold from ACO at £6.50 plus postage. There is a very helpful summary by a Church Times reporter here and another one here.

The document was the major report for the Lusaka ACC-16’s theme of ‘Intentional Discipleship in a World of Differences’, and the following resolution was passed in taking forward the spirit of the discussions during the ACC-16:

Resolution 16.01: Intentional Discipleship

The Anglican Consultative Council

  1. acknowledges with gratitude the work of the Anglican Witness Core Group accomplished in the last six years and particularly the work of advancing discipleship; and
  2. in light of the Gospel and theological imperative to make disciples, recognizes the need for every province, diocese and parish in the Anglican Communion to adopt a clear focus on intentional discipleship and to produce resources to equip and enable the whole church to be effective in making new disciples of Jesus Christ; and
  3. requests the Standing Committee to work with the Secretary General and Mission Department to effect a Season of Intentional Discipleship for a period covering ACCs 16, 17,18; and report back at ACC-17 on progress.
  4. commends the report, Intentional Discipleship and Disciple making—an Anglican Guide to Christian Life and Formation, for study across the Anglican Communion.
