Among the church leaders to attend the meeting, called the New Network Anglican Mainstream, were Archbishop Drexel Gomez of the West Indies, Gregory Venables, presiding bishop of the southern cone the Anglican Church in southern Latin America, five bishops from the Oxford Diocese and representatives of the American Anglican Council. Members of the Church of England Evangelical Council and the conservative group Reform also attended.
