World News – Anglican split tipped

The Archbishop of Canterbury has warned there is a “realistic” possibility that the global Anglican church may fracture, amid tensions over homosexuality.

Archbishop Justin Welby has recently visited all members of the global Anglican Communion, to attempt to address some of the growing discontent in the church. There have long been fears that there are divides between the more liberal churches and others within the Communion – particularly African churches.

Speaking to The Times in London after his global trip, Archbishop Welby said: “I think, realistically, we’ve got to say that despite all efforts there is a possibility that we will not hold together, or not hold together for a while.”
