Ecumenical Partners

We in the ACC believe that all Christians should work together to further God's kingdom here on earth, and we pray that the divisions that exist between Churches may one day cease in pursuit of that goal.  The ACC is in full communion with several other continuing Anglican bodies, and are in ecumenical dialogue with Old Catholics who share our views on the apostolic ministry and Christian moral teaching.

Churches in Communion

The Church of India, Pakistan, Burma, and Ceylon (CIPBC)

The Church of India, Pakistan and Burma and Ceylon, commonly known as CIPBC, is the successor to the Church of England in India. After the Indian CofE Bishops entered into the pan-Protestant Church of North India in 1970, the Apostolic Succession was restored  by the Anglican Catholic Church, Original Province, and since then the Church of India has been in full communion with the ACC. In 2005 Most Reverend John Augustine was enthroned as Metropolitan of the Church of India (CIPBC).

The G-4

In 2017 the ACC came together with three other Continuing Anglican jurisdictions to form what is commonly known as the G-4 (Group of Four).  All four jurisdictions trace their origins to the Congress of St. Louis, recognize each others orders and sacraments as fully valid, and are in a state of communio in sacris.  They have also pledged to pursue organic union in the near future.

The G-4 and Polish National Catholic Church (PNCC) have been in ecumenical dialogue since 2018.  The PNCC was in full communion with the Episcopal Church USA from the 1940s to the 1970s, and recent talks have centered on how to restore the PNCC's relationship with faithful Anglicans through the Union of Scrantion.
