WELCOME to Forward in Faith in Lincolnshire Diocese
You are visiting the comprehensive site for Traditional Anglicanism in Lincolnshire. You will find information about us, our role within the communities of Lincolnshire, the many groups, organisations, societies and churches which hold to the apostolic and catholic faith and order received by the Church of England.
We hope and pray that your time with us will be enriching, offering you answers to some of the many questions about Forward in Faith.
Women Bishops Legislation.
Statement by Lincoln Forward in Faith Council.
We must regret the decision taken at the General Synod of the Church of England in July to introduce women bishops into the Church. For us it is a sadness that our church has seemingly turned aside from the example of our Lord and the Apostles and also destroyed all hopes of unity between the Church of England and the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches. Nevertheless we are encouraged that the legislation makes adequate provision for traditionalists, by retaining the Sees of Richborough, Ebbsfleet and Beverley, speaks of a desire that we should flourish, and acknowledges that those who do not agree with the ordination of women as priests and bishops are “loyal Anglicans”.
We look forward now to the inauguration of “The Society” as an Ecclesial entity, under our bishops and formed of priests, parishes and their laity working together to defend, promote and propagate the faith “once delivered to the saints.” This is our task in the months and years ahead. We are still going “forward in faith.”
