About the Lambeth Conference

The Lambeth Conference is a once-a-decade event gathering bishops and spouses from across the Anglican Communion for prayer, bible study, fellowship and dialogue on church and world issues.

Convened by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the conference takes place across venues at the University of Kent, Canterbury Cathedral and Lambeth Palace during the summer of 2020. Over one thousand bishops and spouses will travel to the conference. They will represent churches and Christian communities from around 165 countries of the Anglican Communion - one of the largest Christian communities in the world.

The theme of the conference is God’s Church for God’s world, walking, listening and witnessing together
