Archbishop of Canterbury’s Awards ceremony held at Lambeth Palace

Jun 14, 2017 by

Over 35 people from around the world were recognised with awards for outstanding service to the church in a ceremony at Lambeth Palace on Friday.

Archbishop Justin Welby personally presented the awards, which recognise outstanding service in different fields, including those of Archbishop Justin’s ministry priorities: prayer and the Religious life; reconciliation; and evangelism and witness.

The present awards, first given in 2016, consist of three existing Lambeth Awards – the Lambeth Cross, the Canterbury Cross and the Cross of St Augustine – and six new awards named after previous holders of the office of Archbishop of Canterbury.

Over 35 people received the awards. Recipients included religious, political and community leaders, musicians and others, from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. (Read the citations for the recipients here.)
