A joint programme
Welcoming male and female spouses from across the Anglican Communion, the conference will be a key opportunity for spiritual reflection, growing connections and sharing stories about the vocation and ministry experiences of spouses across the Anglican World.
Like the bishops attending, spouses represent a wide variety of cultural and vocational contexts. Some spouses play a very active and complementary role in the bishopric ministry. Others pursue more distinct and particular vocations, alongside their spouse.
As well as participating in many of the conference sessions with bishops, there will also be some bespoke programme moments for spouses to attend.
The joint programme will include a retreat, worship and liturgy, Bible studies and group discussion.
The joint programme will draw from a wide range of experiences and ministry settings of spouses from across the Anglican communion.
Interpretation will be provided for the joint programme.
