Since 1867, the Lambeth Conference – a gathering of the bishops of the Anglican Communion – has taken place approximately once every ten years. Bishops gather at the invitation of the Archbishop of Canterbury to pray together, study the Bible, to hear the struggles and joys that each experience in their local contexts and to address the issues facing the world.
Our bishops, Rachel and Robert, have returned from this year’s Lambeth Conference. You will be aware that there has been much discussion, and also some confusion, in the media around things discussed at this year’s conference. To clarify and summarise much of what happened, a ‘post Lambeth’ message from both of our bishops can be found here
