Senior Anglican leaders meet before Lambeth

The leaders of 36 of the Anglican Communion’s 40 member churches have gathered in the Middle East for what has been described as “a very strategic meeting.”

The chief pastors of the Communion – the senior archbishops, moderators and presiding bishops of the Anglican provinces – met for a formal session before the primates took part in separate pilgrimages, beginning together at the site of Jesus’ baptism with Eucharist and a reaffirmation of baptism vows.

Members of the Community of St Anselm – the youth-focussed new monastic movement based at Lambeth Palace – maintained “a praying presence” during the Primates’ Meeting.

One item on the meeting agenda was a report from the Task Group that was established following the 2016 Primates’ Meeting to maintain relationships within the Anglican Communion. The spokesman said that the Task Group has been considering “what impaired communion and distance looks like,” and will present its thinking on how the Communion can continue to walk together.

The theme of the 2020 Lambeth Conference, which is held in Canterbury from the 23rd July until the 2nd August, is 'God’s Church for God’s World: walking, listening and witnessing together.'

People wishing to join the Prayer Journey for the Lambeth Conference can access a seasonal Prayer Diary.

The journey also invites people to send in prayers, which will be displayed on a prayer wall to encourage those attending the conference.

Some of these will also be featured on the Lambeth Conference web site between now and the event.
