Archbishop Peter Jensen of Sydney has released a video stating that he and Bishop Martyn Minns will travel to Nairobi this week to review security arrangements for next month's Gafcon conference at All Saints Cathedral.

Dr. Jensen said it was his "desire" not to relocate the gathering of over 1000 delegates from across the Communion to another country, as he believed it was important for overseas Christians to stand in solidarity with their "Kenyan brothers and sisters" in the face of attacks by Muslim terrorists. The archbishop noted that New York, London and other major cities had been victims of terrorism in recent years, and "we will look into the arrangements already put in place" for the Nairobi gathering. Security was an issue at the 2008 Gafcon meeting in Jerusalem, he said, adding that he would report back to participants shortly.
