Being Anglican

Bishops’ Online Meeting – February 13 and 15, 2024:

Companion Links – An opportunity to learn more 

The series will also explore the benefits of Companion Links between dioceses, inviting bishops from around the world to set up new links. 

Companion Links are relationships set up between Dioceses of the Anglican Communion – mutually organised by the participating Diocesan teams. Companion Links support one another in prayer, mission and fellowship. 

At the Lambeth Conference several bishops expressed interest in establishing new links. The Lambeth Conference team will run this meeting for Anglican bishops that wish to learn more about the scheme. Invitations will be sent to all bishops that attended the Lambeth Conference. 

Celebrating Communion life through Companion Links

If you are a new bishop, please contact us to ensure you receive your invitation.

About the Anglican Communion

The Anglican Communion is a family of churches present in over 165 countries worldwide, with an estimated membership of around 85 million people.

Anglican churches are independent and different from each other. But they have much in common. Anglican churches are ‘in communion’ with the See of Canterbury. They have a shared life of prayer and worship, ongoing relationship and mission.

The Instruments of the Anglican Communion

The Anglican Communion is supported by ‘Instruments’ of Communion, that work together to strengthen the shared life of Communion and support dialogue on matters of common concern. The Instruments of the Communion are:

  • The Archbishop of Canterbury
  • The Lambeth Conference
  • The Anglican Consultative Council
  • The Primates’ Meeting

Anglican Communion and The Five Marks of Mission

In recent years, churches of the Anglican Communion have become increasingly identified with the Five Marks of Mission. They express the Anglican Communion’s common commitment to and understanding of God’s holistic and integral mission: that the mission of the Church is the mission of Christ. The Five Marks are:

  • Tell: To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • Teach: To teach, baptise and nurture new believers 
  • Tend: To respond to human need by loving service
  • Transform: To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation 
  • Treasure: To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth
