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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- commends the report, Intentional Discipleship and Disciple making—an Anglican Guide to Christian Life and Formation, for study across the Anglican Communion.
