About Us

Founded in 1992, the International Anglican Family Network (IAFN) is one of the Networks of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Working with those involved in the development and delivery of family ministries, IAFN networks across the Anglican Communion to celebrate and strengthen the God-given potential of the family as a source of thriving relationships, identity, belonging, discipleship and reconciliation.  Out of this celebration, IAFN is an advocate for the family in the face of behaviours which diminish this potential, sharing stories of hope, promoting family care and sustaining the family as the cradle of human dignity.

With a credibility rooted in the knowledge and experience of Network members and their work, IAFN’s main developmental contribution is made through the publication of specific-themed Newsletters and periodic Regional Consultations.

IAFN has a Management Committee with an international membership which meets regularly with the IAFN Coordinator to develop, manage and review the contribution of IAFN.
