Anglicans For Life (AFL) is a global Anglican ministry dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia through ministry, education, pastoral care, and biblical advocacy in partnership with churches in the Anglican Communion.
This year, the ministry will livestream its annual Summit on January 16th and 23rd, 11am - 3pm EST. SUMMIT 2021 features outstanding keynote speakers and workshop leaders, equipping attendees with life-affirming teaching and ministry inspiration.
- January 16th features keynote presentations, as well as discussion time for those participating in watch parties and chat rooms for those watching as individuals. Attendees will be able to participate in conversations about practical action steps and plans for ongoing ministry and education in the local community.
Churches are encouraged to host a Summit 2021 Virtual Watch Party at their parish (if COVID-19 state standards allow). This will create an opportunity to build a team of Anglicans interested in developing life ministry in the church. If your church cannot do this, encourage parishioners to participate from home.

- January 23rd offers topical workshop tracks, allowing participants to dig deeper into specific life issues that interest them.
"Concerns about Covid-19 prompted AFL's decision to take Summit 2021 virtual," explains AFL President Georgette Forney. "The pandemic is generating real concern about the value of life, and our message is needed now more than ever. There is a silver lining, however. In 2021, instead of only 125 people attending the Summit and learning about life, death, abortion, and euthanasia, everyone in churches coast-to-coast can be equipped to uphold the Sanctity of Life! When I consider how church life-ministries will be mobilized, I am in awe."
