The Lambeth Conference reschedules to 2022

from ENS:

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has sent a message encouragement to “walk together and be good news” to the bishops and spouses of the Anglican Communion today – in the month that would have seen the fifteenth Lambeth Conference hosted in Canterbury.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this decennial meeting of Anglican bishops and spouses had been rescheduled to the British summer of 2021. Since then – after ongoing monitoring of the pandemic and consultation with bishops and primates around the world – a new decision has been reached to further reschedule the conference to the British summer of 2022.

Archbishop Justin’s words were shared in a special video message to over 1100 bishops and spouses of the Anglican Communion, who would have been making the journey to the Canterbury this summer.

In the video, the Archbishop has also announced that alongside the postponed physical conference meeting in 2022 in Canterbury, a wider programme will be developed before and after the event, delivered virtually and through other meetings.
