WORLDWIDE ANGLICAN CHURCH
This is to inform the public that on August 8, 2019, the House of bishops of the (former) Worldwide Anglican Church, with the two-thirds majority vote, have resolved the adamant refusal to the malpractice of (former) Matriarch, Archbishop Christine Johnson in the USA and (former) Patriarch in Uganda.
The prevailing Bishops and clergies of the (former) Worldwide Anglican Church have given strong support to the resolution of the House of Bishops, and on August 9, 2019, they received a moral support and advice from the team of bishops of the Anglican branches in the Americas and removed themselves, renounced its name and became the Continuing Anglican Church (CAC) of which the Worldwide Anglican Church (Continuing).
The (former) WAC continues in Africa and South America with a handful of bishops and priests, but it became an unhealthy organization. The Continuing Anglican Church bishops, priests, and churches do not recognize them, preferring to remain committed to the dedicated ministry of our founding fathers in 1921, with an emphasis on humble service to all mankind, and a strong commitment to our Anglican roots.
Operations of the Church is now conducted with the utmost fairness, and the organization is dedicated to establishing a resilient and welcoming foundation for devoted believers worldwide.
St Peter the Apostle
The Worldwide Anglican Church (Continuing) owes its Episcopate and Apostolic Authority to the Syrian Church of Antioch where their disciples were first called Christians, and of which the See of St Peter the Apostle was the first Bishop.

1. The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended,
The darkness falls at Thy behest;
To Thee, our morning hymns ascended,
Thy praise shall hallow now our rest.
2. We thank Thee that Thy Church unsleeping,
While earth rolls onward into light,
Through all the world her watch is keeping,
And rests not now by day or night.
3. As o’er each continent and island
The dawn leads on another day,
The voice of prayer is never silent,
Nor dies the strain of praise away.
4. The sun, that bids us rest, is waking
Our brethren ‘neath the western sky,
And hour by hour fresh lips are making
Thy wondrous doings heard on high.
5. So be it, Lord; Thy throne shall never,
Like earth’s proud empires, pass away:
Thy kingdom stands and grow forever,
Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.
(Former) Worldwide Anglican Church is administered by Archbishop Christopher Lwanga Tusubira in Uganda and Christine Mercy Johnson in the USA.
