The fifteenth Lambeth Conference

26 July – 8th August 2022

Con­vened by The Arch­bish­op of Can­ter­bury in 2022, the Lam­beth Con­fer­ence is a gath­er­ing of bish­ops from across the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion for pray­er and reflec­tion, fel­low­ship and dia­logue on church and world affairs.

With the theme of ‘God’s Church for God’s World — walk­ing, listen­ing and wit­ness­ing together,’

the con­fer­ence will explore what it means for the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion to be respons­ive to the needs of a 21st Cen­tury world.


What is the Lam­beth Conference?

Every bish­op of the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion is invited to the Lam­beth Con­fer­ence – which is con­vened by The Most Rev­er­end Justin Welby – The Arch­bish­op of Can­ter­bury.  The Lam­beth Con­fer­ence has met since 1867, hap­pens once-a-dec­ade and is a sig­ni­fic­ant event in the life of the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion.  The con­fer­ence will explore church and world affairs.  Out­comes of the con­fer­ence will shape the life of the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion in the dec­ade ahead.


Vis­ion and purpose

This event plays an influ­en­tial role in the life of the Anglic­an Church and gath­ers togeth­er bish­ops and spouses for pray­er, bible study, wor­ship and fel­low­ship and helps shape the life of the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion for the next decade.

The con­fer­ence takes place at the Uni­ver­sity of Kent, Can­ter­bury Cathed­ral and Lam­beth Palace dur­ing the sum­mer of 2022.

Please pray for the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion.  The Lam­beth Con­fer­ence is for Anglic­an Bish­ops from across the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion.  Present in 165 coun­tries around the world and serving mil­lions of Chris­ti­ans world­wide, the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion is a net­work of inde­pend­ent and inter­de­pend­ent churches.  Please pray for the bish­ops and their spouses attend­ing, and the churches and com­munit­ies they rep­res­ent around the world.

The bish­ops at the 2008 Lam­beth Con­fer­ence of bish­ops pose for the tra­di­tion­al group photo. Photo: Anglic­an Archives [Epis­copal News Ser­vice]  With the 15th Lam­beth Con­fer­ence sched­uled this sum­mer, Arch­bish­op of Can­ter­bury Justin Welby is seek­ing to unite the Anglic­an Com­mu­nion under com­mon expres­sions of faith and social engage­ment, rather than focus­ing on debates over human sexu­al­ity that have divided bish­ops at past conferences.

“The aim of this con­fer­ence – which, like all the [Lam­beth] con­fer­ences, is a very sig­ni­fic­ant moment in the life of the com­munity – is to encour­age Anglic­ans around the world to be look­ing out­wards to the world,” he said in a press con­fer­ence with con­fer­ence organ­izers on June 22.  “The church should express its mis­sion and its life of dis­ciple­ship through engage­ment with the great chal­lenges that the next 30 or 40 years will impose upon the vast major­ity of Anglic­ans, espe­cially those in areas of cli­mate fra­gil­ity, and polit­ic­al and oth­er fragility.”
