Lambeth Conference

The Lambeth Conference takes place approximately every ten years. The first was held in 1867. Bishops from around the Anglican Communion are invited to attend by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The next Lambeth Conference is in Canterbury in July and August 2020. Its theme is “God’s Church for God’s World: walking, listening and witnessing together”.  The event is organised and run by the Lambeth Conference Company assisted by staff from Lambeth Palace and the Anglican Communion office. A Design Group assists in organising the programme. The Secretary General of the Anglican Communion serves as conference secretary. See here for more details of Lambeth Conference 2020.
