Welcome to official web site of the fifteenth Lambeth Conference

27 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.

The journey to the conference starts during 2021, where there will be opportunities for prayer, dialogue and reflection, involving the conference community – and wider Anglican World. 

What is it?

2022 is the year of the fifteenth Lambeth Conference. The theme is God’s Church for God’s World – Walking, Listening and Witnessing Together. The Lambeth Conference is a once-a-decade gathering of bishops from across the Anglican Communion.

Where and when?

Convened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the conference will meet in 2022. Before the conference meets, there will be time given for prayer, preparation and dialogue. There will be three phases to the Lambeth Conference journey. Read more.

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.

Biblical focus

As the Lambeth Conference explores the theme of being ‘God’s Church for God’s World’, the Biblical focus for the event will be the book of 1 Peter. A wide range of resources have been developed for use in Bible studies, discussions and seminars.

It’s my prayer that, inspired by the Holy Spirit, the Lambeth Conference will reinvigorate the Communion with the vision and resources to bring the transforming love of Jesus Christ to every level of society across the world. It will be a time of addressing hurts and concerns; of deepening existing relationships and building new ones; of grappling with issues that face the Church and the world. We will listen to each other; we will seek God’s wisdom to find ways to walk together; we will build each other up as leaders.

Prayer from The Archbishop of Canterbury
