Watch the ‘Bishop’s Conversation’ introduction videos

Between July - December 2021, a series of online 'Bishops’ Conversations' will begin, as part of the journey to the Lambeth Conference. The sessions are open to all Anglican Bishops and will start exploring the conference theme of what it means to be ‘God’s Church for God’s World.’

The meetings are being designed and planned by the Lambeth Conference Working Group, Chaired by Bishop Emma Ineson. Earlier this year, some of the Working Group and Lambeth Conference planning team members shared their hopes for Bishops’ Conversations in a filmed panel conversation with The Archbishop of Canterbury.

The conversation has been made into a series of short films that feature below.

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba – Primate of Southern Africa and The Chair of the Lambeth Conference Design Group - also shares a message of support for Bishops’ Conversations.
