Notes
The Christmas 2000 issue of the International Anglican Family Network discusses how an increasing number of "changes such as a widening gap between poverty and affluence, global communications and increasing secularism, all affect families and their faith." "In many parts of Africa and in the Western world, faith used to be nurtured in the family and in society ... Times change. Now, the transmission and nurturing of faith has to be worked for in a range of ways: by parents, by church evangelism, by modern communications such as the internet". Article includes reports from 12 different countries.

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Advent 2001. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about family breakdown. "The articles in this newsletter tell of increased marriage and relationship breakdown, more children on the streets, more despair fuelling alcohol and drug abuse. Many refer to the root causes of poverty, the AIDS pandemic, and, of course, war ... But the picture is not all bleak. An article from Canada points out that a marriage breakdown may, in some cases, represent a new start, free from hidden violence and abuse. Many of the articles tell of vigorous efforts being made by churches and projects from all over the Anglican Communion to help the casualties of family breakdown".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Easter 2000. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about the role of fathers in contemporary families and society. The issue describes "patriarchal societies where the position of the man as the head of the family in `non negotiable'," and Western societies where this is not the pattern. "Articles from Africa and India cite Biblical texts to underline the male head-ship of the family. They go on to reveal both the strengths and the weaknesses of such head-ship: when abused it can make the lives of women and children inescapably miserable. .... Throughout the Anglican Communion there is evidence of the dislocation of rapid change, often in part brought about by economic forces which undermine the role of men for example as `breadwinner' of the family."
Article notes that Canada, which is "the most water-rich nation on the Earth, can supply almost 122,000 cubic metres per person per year". "Even in a temperate climate, human beings require a litre of water each day, or 0.35 cubic meters per year, to sustain life".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for December 2007. "The future of cities depends on the future of young people. In particular, it depends on what policy makers can do to equip young people to break the cycle of poverty. This in turn depends on involving young people in the decisions that affect them. Over half the global population now live in towns and cities. Cities with over 10 million people are becoming commonplace. Elsewhere smaller settlements are exploding with rural migrants". "In many countries, the majority of children will live in urban slums. Increasingly the urban dream is vanishing. The possibility of moving beyond one's parents' poverty disappears". "Families are faced with many pressures and dilemmas -- which children to educate, which to send to live and work with relatives, decisions often made on the basis of gender". "In the midst of our cities are stories of hope, of risks taken in faith. When we work with families, children and young people we work with the cities of the future, with them we often glimpse a different city -- one of possibility, of energy and safe spaces. We need to make those visions central to our presence and witness in the cities of the 21st century". After a series of stories about particular initiatives in different countries, the section ends with a prayer that begins: "O God, give us vision for our cities, that they may be cities of justice, cities of prosperity and cities of peace, in which vice and poverty cease to fester, children play in the streets in safety and the elderly walk without fear". IAFN Newsletter divided into sections: Editorial / Andrew Davey -- Kenya: Kibera Slum, Nairobi / Colin Smith -- Zambia: Chawama Compound, Lusaka / Emmanuel Chikoya -- Rwanda: Kigali City / Josephine Rwaje -- Brazil: Salvador / Stephen Taylor and Bruno Almeida -- Belize City / Cecile Reyes -- India: Delhi / Monodeep Daniel -- Japan: Nagoya (The fourth largest city in Japan) / Kei Ikezumi and Claire Gelder -- Australia: City of Newcastle / Fergus King -- Italy: City of Rome / Michael L.
