The Gospel and the Catholic Church – A conference discussing Anglican Patrimony today

Jan 23, 2018 by

A message from Bishops John Hind and Michael Nazir-Ali:

The impetus for this conference began in the 80th anniversary year of Michael Ramsey’s “The Gospel and the Catholic Church”. This suggested the possibility of a conference to consider the inheritance of traditional Anglicanism and the contribution this might make to the renewal of the Church. It is hoped, therefore, to attract a wide participation from those who value orthodox Anglican Patrimony. The themes consider mission and evangelisation, ecumenism and ecclesiology, worship and liturgy, fidelity to the gospel (both in doctrine and ministry), culture and relations with the state.

The conference has attracted highly-regarded speakers, who come from a wide range of churches and churchmanship. As well as providing the opportunity to hear from our speakers, we have designed the conference programme to provide ample opportunity for questions and discussion.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference (25-26 April 2018).
