Convened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2022, the Lambeth Conference is an international meeting of Anglican bishops. The conference discusses church and world affairs and the global mission of the Anglican Communion for the decade ahead.

26 July – 8 August 2022

The conference theme is 'God's Church for God's World - walking, listening and witnessing together.' The conference will explore what it means for the Anglican Communion to be responsive to the needs of a 21st Century world.


Meeting around every ten years since 1867, the Lambeth Conference is one of the four Instruments of Unity in the Anglican Communion. The 2022 meeting will be the 15th Lambeth Conference.


The Lambeth Conference programme will be built around a daily rhythm combining prayer, daily worship, Bible Expositions and Bible Study Groups, Plenary/Keynote addresses from guest speakers and 'Lambeth Calls' discussions.


Programme themes will include Mission and Evangelism, Safe Church, Communion, Reconciliation, Environment and Sustainable Development, Christian Unity, Interfaith Relations and Discipleship.


Wider themes will also be considered including ongoing response to a world changed by COVID-19 and the relationship of the Church with the increasing role of science and technology in our lives.


The conference will also include a seminar and evening programme.
