Setting the vision for the Lambeth Conference 2020

What is it?

2020 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 happens once-a-decade. It’s a gathering of bishops from across the Anglican Communion.

Where and when?

Convened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the conference takes place at the University of Kent, Canterbury Cathedral and Lambeth Palace during the summer of 2020. Over one thousand people will travel to the conference from around 165 countries.

Vision and purpose

This event plays an influential role in the life of the Anglican Church worldwide 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.
