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.
You can download a copy of the Conference Prayer Guide at: https://www.lambethconference.org/resources/prayer-guide/
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.
From: Episcopal News Service
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.”
