£750,000 grant gives major boost to Lambeth Conference 2020

from Anglican Journal:

The organizers of the 2020 Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops have received a major boost with the announcement that Allchurches Trust – owners of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group – have made a £750,000 grant to help fund bursaries.

Every active bishop in the Anglican Communion will be invited to the Lambeth Conference, but the cost of attending the 11-day gathering can be prohibitive for bishops from developing countries. The chief executive of the Lambeth Conference Company, Phil George, said he was “bowled over” on hearing the news.

“Our heart is in the church, in the Christian religion, and in the Anglican Church in particular,” the chair of Allchurches Trust, Sir Philip Mawer, said in an interview with ACNS. “That is why we are deeply committed to making sure that the Christian voice is heard on the key issues of the day – we believe that the Conference in 2020 will enable that to be delivered. It is increasingly important in a secular society and world that that voice is heard. And within that it is crucially important that the voice of the Global South and disadvantaged areas is heard too.”
