The Pakistani-born Bishop Nazir Ali said the Church potentially had “a great future and a huge opportunity” in the emerging world order and that it now had allies in upholding orthodoxy, even in unexpected quarters.

Speaking on the subject of “A Global Christianity in the Making”, he said that how effective the Church would be depended on how Rome viewed its own position and on its willingness to address its approach to certain issues, such as culture and language.
