"How to provide the names of the dioceses and the correct name of the bishop is also something we are attempting to do through the website: www.anglicancommunion.org. ..... We also know that since using the web as a primary source for the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, thousands more people have been attracted to it than we have ever had in buying a hard copy that was available through one of our sister organisations in the United States." "[T]herefore in this particular issue I am issuing the entire year of 2007, realising full well that by the time these prayers are said in many places there will be need for updates. I would ask all of you to visit the website often ...".
"The Anglican Communion News Service, which has been operating since the 1990s has a new purpose-built website 'AnglicanNews.org'. The website has been built as a one-stop shop where people can go for not only news, but also feature articles, comment pieces, videos, podcasts and photos from Anglican communities around the world. Launching the site in June , Director for Communications at the Communion Office, Jan Butter, said this kind of site -- made possible through funding from the Compass Rose Society and the Church Missions Publishing Company -- had been long overdue. 'We are proud to have provided "Anglican World" magazine and now "AnglicanNews.org" -- two places where Anglicans and Episcopalians can get a better picture of the life and mission in Anglican provinces around the world'. One of the first Comment articles was by Archbishop Justin Welby who wrote that 'Communicating is part of the gift of being the Anglican Communion'."
"Anglicans and Episcopalians interested in evangelism and church growth now have a new website where they can find the latest resources and examples of best practice. 'Anglicanwitness.org' is described as "a one stop shop resource hub for church growth, discipleship, youth and children ministry, and other forms of evangelism'. It was built by the core group of the 'Anglican Witness: Evangelism and Church Growth Initiative', whose members say the site 'brings together Anglicans from across the world committed to strengthening evangelism within communities; seeing churches grow spiritually and numerically; building capacity to engage the whole of God's creation with Christ's love; and seeing God's name glorified in everyday life experience'."

Prior to 2002, reports of the Anglican Consultative Council meetings were catalogued as one periodical record. With 2002 OTCH will catalogue and treat Meeting reports as separate monographs due to size and incorporation of additional material.
Author responds to letter from Tony Capon "Where's Lusitania" in January 2009. "The Lusitanian Catholic Apostolic Evangelical Church is the Anglican Church in Portugal .... The official Web site of the Anglican Communion is very helpful".
There will be an international NIFCON consultation in Bangalore, South India, in September 2003. On 11 September 2003 Archbishop Rowan Williams will attend the third meeting of a Christian-Muslim Commission established by Archbishop George Carey at the Islamic University of Al Azhar in Cairo. These meetings are sometimes known as the Al Azhar dialogue after the university where they first met. NIFCON has recently expanded its web site to provide monitoring of Christian Muslim relations around the Communion.
Report also contains the full text of a story on the current political and interfaith context in Sri Lanka which has been moving toward real peace and interfaith cooperation. The article, written by Andrew Wingate, originally appeared in the Church Times of 20 September 2002 and highlights the interfaith work of Bishop Duleep de Chickera, Anglican Bishop of Colombo in the Church of Ceylon.
Just over a year ago the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, Canon Kenneth Kearon, asked Clare Amos, Director of Theological Studies, to convene an informal group of people whose work is involved with Israel/Palestine in various ways. The idea was to gather a pool of information and share expertise which might inform policy. Mainly at the group's behest, the Anglican Communion website now has a section of Holy Land information pages http://www.anglicancommunion.org/the-holy-land/index.cfm which contains statements and documents produced by the Anglican Communion, its members churches and Anglican organisations dealing firstly with issues relating to Israel/Palestine and secondly with the relationship between Christians, particularly Anglicans and Judaism".
"NIFCON has made its mark firmly within the Anglican Communion family by moving its website to the main ACO [Anglican Communion Office] portal. The complete redesign has taken a number of months but it now reflects the style of the other network sites. The aim for NIFCON has been to re-evaluate the information it has accumulated over the last three or four years and order it in such a way that it is easy to find particular items and move from one topic to the next. It has been quite surprising to realise just how much material there was on the old site." As well, thanks to a grant from the Community Development Foundation (a UK Government initiative) NIFCON is now able to launch the Christian Muslim Digest. "The service hopes to offer a digest of information from English speaking newspapers and broadcast services in the main countries or areas where Anglicans and Muslims regularly encounter one another. It seeks to provide factual coverage of stories involving Anglicans and Muslims in a way that shows a) what is happening in relations, and b) how the stories are handled in the media." The new NIFCON website is at: http://nifcon.anglicancommunion.org
"In 2016 Thy Kingdom Come was born. But in 2017 it can be said that this great movement of prayer became truly global with people from 85 countries taking part" (p. 18). "The resources that we produced [this year] sought to serve a variety of traditions and styles, ages and outlooks. All resources were translated into six languages and available for free on the website ... The drive was to engage as many as possible in ways authentic to each, but inviting all into a more profound and committed pattern of prayer for the 10 days" (p. 18). "The website sought to engage people with a sense of the breadth of prayer, with all being encouraged to #pledgetopray. Those who signed up received a daily video for each of the 10 days straight to the inbox" (p. 18). "This year saw the Lusitanian Church in Portugal translate Thy Kingdom Come material into Portuguese and use it with their own evangelistic programme. In Canada the Prayer Fellowship [sic i.e. Anglican Fellowship of Prayer], led by the Primate's Chief of Staff, saw that leaflets went to rural Anglican churches to encourage participation" (p. 19). "The Bishop of Cuba [Griselda Delgado], who leads a Church in a far from easy environment, found being asked to do one of the 11 prayer videos a marvellous encouragement and affirmation of her own ministry" (p. 19).
