Christ Anglican Church begins anew — again — in own space

Christ Church is welcoming a new building for a new era.

The Fallbrook congregation, formerly known as St. John’s Anglican Church, has been conducting services at Living Waters Christian Fellowship Assembly of God Church for the past two years. The church began sharing space with Living Waters after legal battles over property rights and organizational authority allowed the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego to take over the former church property (which is now operating as St. John’s Episcopal).

The members at St. John’s Anglican had previously voted to secede from the Episcopal Church, which is the North American branch of the global Anglican…[Communion], and reaffiliated with a more theologically traditional conservative archdiocese in Africa. Disagreements regarding homosexuality and biblical authority are at the core of an ongoing dispute between the Episcopal Church and hundreds of its congregations, as well as Anglican bishops in other countries.

  1. Statmann says:

    St. John of TEC was founded in 1991. In 2002, it had 400 Members, 180 ASA, and Plate & Pledge of $250K. In 2009, it had 80 Members, 50 ASA, and Plate & Pledge of $70K. Reading its website almost gives one an experience of dark humor. It makes quite a point of describing Bishop Mathes as a strong advocate of church growth. Statmann

    Make that ‘reverse growth.’

    May God bless their faithfulness. I was there for christmas 2008 at the old location.

  4. MichaelA says:

    Blessings on this congregation of faithful believers. They have been doing it hard, which demonstrates the genuineness of their faith.

    The reporting from the secular local paper also appears fair, good publicity for the congregation and what they stand for.
