Events and Conferences

WHENEVER WE HEAR OF a meeting, conference, exhibit, lecture, or special event that is of interest to Anglicans, we list it here. Generally we prefer to list only events that have a wide appeal, on the diocesan or national level. Alas, we cannot list most parish events.

Future and Current

Worldwide: 18 September 2018: Coastal Clean-up Day
'Anglicans and other Christians throughout the world are being encouraged to take part in a coordinated beach-clean-up project in September 2018. The third Saturday in September is recognised by the conservation community as International Coastal Clean-up Day. The Environmental Network of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa is joining forces with the Christian environment network A Rocha International and other partners to encourage Christians around the world to take part in next year’s Coastal Clean-up Day.'

USA: Texas, Dallas, 20-22 September 2018: Ancient Order, Radical Vocation: The Anglican Priesthood as 21st Century Calling
'Those who have a burden for proclaiming Christ to a lost and broken world in need of healing and redemption. This conference was conceived as a place to have a conversation about what this looks like in the Anglican tradition, and to give missional, Gospel-burdened young adults a space in which to reflect on their vocation, i.e. calling. In short, this conference is an opportunity for you to consider whether God is calling you to a life of dynamic ministry in the great tradition of the ancient Church. You do not at all need to be an Anglican to come to this conference. All are strongly encouraged to attend. But be warned, you might want to become an Anglican by the time you leave.'

Past events

USA: Texas, Austin, 5-13 July 2018: General Convention of the US Episcopal Church

Worldwide: 25 May - 4 June 2017: Thy Kingdom Come
In May 2016 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York invited people to join a wave of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost. This is traditionally a time when the church focuses on prayer, just as the first disciples gathered after they had watched Jesus ascend into heaven. […] The hope is to see at least 80 per cent of Church of England churches and cathedrals taking part as well as many other denominations and the churches of the world-wide Anglican Communion. Leaders from the international Methodist church, the Free churches, the Roman Catholic Church, Pentecostal churches and several of the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox churches in the UK have all signalled their support.'

England: London, 11-16 January 2016: Primates Meeting
'The Archbishop of Canterbury has invited all 37 Primates to Canterbury to reflect and pray together concerning the future of the Anglican Communion.'

The pilgrimage will start in London on 13/14 November and arrive in Paris on 27 November.'
