The Lambeth Conference of Anglican Bishops from around the world is taking place in Canterbury from 26 July to 8 August. It was postponed in 2020, but is going ahead this year instead. However, because of pandemic travel concerns, visiting bishops have been requested to travel directly to Canterbury, and dioceses in Britain are no longer being asked to offer hospitality. That means, very regretfully, that Bishop Marinez of Amazonia (Brazil) and Bishop Paritosh of Calcutta (India) were not after all be able to visit us in the Diocese before Lambeth.
The Global Partnership Committee is planning a Diocesan Global Gathering on the Lambeth Conference theme (‘God’s Church for God’s World’) after the Conference on 4th September – celebrating our global partnership links, including a report of the Conference from Bishop Ian and, possibly, online participation by Bishop Marinez and Bishop Paritosh.
