The Anglican Church in America Executive Council and national church delegates meeting in General Synod in Atlanta, Georgia have ratified the decision to change the Traditional Anglican Communion to the Traditional Anglican Church, part of Christ's One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

For a number of years, the TAC has been a worldwide federation of national churches within the historic Anglican tradition. The Anglican Church in America is one of those national churches. This decision changes the TAC from a communion of national churches into a single global church. The ACA will be a Province of this global church. National Church bodies within the TAC from all over the world are in a similar process of approving this change.

The Traditional Anglican Church will be comprised of eight Provinces: The Anglican Catholic Church in Australia; The Anglican Catholic Church of Canada; The Anglican Church in America; The Anglican Church of India; The Province of the Anglican Church in Latin America; The Province of Africa of the Traditional Anglican Church; The Church of Ireland (Traditional Rite); The Traditional Anglican Church in Britain; and The Church of Torres Strait.

The international church will be governed by a Primate, together with a General Synod consisting of a House of Bishops, a House of Clergy, and a House of Laity, representing each diocese within the TAC. This also expands the efforts of the TAC to seek unity with other similar traditional church bodies.

This is also inclusive of our efforts to continue the strengthening of the intercommunion relationship with the G4 jurisdictions which includes the Anglican Church in America, the Anglican Catholic Church, Anglican Province of America, and Diocese of the Holy Cross.
