That General Synod notes with appreciation and grateful thanks to God the success of the National Anglican Conference held in Canberra in February 1997, and the affirmation of Christian witness and fellowship and inter-dependence amongst Australian Anglicans shown at the Conference.

The General Synod commends to the Church the proposal to hold similar provincial conferences in 1999 and a National Anglican Conference in 2002, and encourages all members of this church to support and contribute to these conferences.

[Archbishop R.H. Goodhew – 17-2-98]
