We are a diocese of the Anglican Church in North America, based in a suburb of Atlanta, and serving the Southeast. We are dedicated to helping church planters, pastors, and lay people reach the unchurched with the Gospel, through vibrant churches and new plants.
The Most Rev. Dr. Foley Beach served as the Rector and Pastor of Holy Cross Anglican Church in Loganville, Georgia from February 2004 to December 2013. On October 9, 2010, he was consecrated as the first Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the South in the Anglican Church of North America. He was elected Archbishop of the province and began serving on June 28, 2014.
The Anglican Church in North America unites some 100,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States and Canada into a single Church. It is an emerging Province in the global Anglican Communion. ACNA has planted nearly 500 churches in the past five years, and by God's grace our goal is to remission and plant many more.
Anglican Diocese of the South exists to equip clergy and congregations to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission (Mark 12:29-31; Matthew 28:19-20) by leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through personal discipleship, evangelism, and the nurturing and planting of congregations.
