A Peachtree City church congregation that walked away from the Episcopal Church or TEC over Bible interpretations, chose a new name this week and a new location. Most recently known as the Anglican Church of Fayette County, the group has selected All Saints Anglican Church as its permanent name, and a multi-use building in Tyrone for worship for at least the next year.

The church will begin meeting at the Whistle Blow Station on March 18 at 10:30 a.m.while it develops longer range facility plans. A one-year occupancy agreement has been made which provides two large connected suites. Since splitting from TEC, the newly formed church has met at the Gathering Place and Huddleston School in Peachtree City.

“We are very excited about this arrangement,” said David Wardell, Senior Warden, “ These suites offer a generous area for worship, excellent office space, kitchen facilities and a parish hall which can be used for multiple purposes. In the coming year, we will study options for a real church building, but for now this will more than meet our needs.”

After it broke with the Episcopal Church last month All Saints Anglican Church affiliated with the rapidly growing Convocation of Anglicans In North America or CANA under the Right Reverend Martyn Minns of Fairfax, Va.
About 40 churches withdrew from TEC last year including what had been the largest in the country, Christ Church in Plano, Texas.
