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

Ireland: Dublin, 20-23 August 2019: Lunctime Lectures on Disestablishment
'As part of the Church of Ireland's programme of events to mark the 150th anniversary of its Disestablishment, a lunchtime lecture series will run at the Irish Architectural Archive, 45 Merrion Square, Dublin, during Heritage Week this August.'

England: Cambridge, 13-15 September 2019: New Trinitarian Ontologies
'Theologians once studied the question of being so as to study the far greater question of God. Modern ontology has often attempted to build a towering structure of being, but, by failing to secure its foundations, has evacuated being into nothing. Yet if ontology cannot contain but rather points to God, then we may once more begin to investigate new approaches to metaphysics or ontology in imitation of the Trinity. We may witness today a great opportunity, one that is equally post-analytic and post-continental, to collaborate in the construction of new ontologies of the Trinity. We wish, for this purpose, to invite you to join us for a three-day international conference at the University of Cambridge.'

England: London, 28 September 2019: Chancel screens since the Reformation
The annual conference of the Ecclesiological Society.

England: London, 2-3 October 2019: Lambeth Conference 1920 and the Ecumenical Vocation of Anglicanism
'Meeting in the aftermath of the Great War, the bishops who convened for the Lambeth Conference in 1920 felt themselves ‘drawn by a Power greater than themselves to a general agreement’ regarding the contours of a new approach to Christian unity, embodied in the famous and influential Appeal to All Christian People. In preparation for the centenary of the Lambeth Appeal that will coincide with the next Lambeth Conference, this conference will review the legacy of 1920 and ask what the ecumenical vocation of Anglicanism might be today.' Colloquium at Lambeth Palace, in partnership with Westminster Abbey, the Living Church Institute, Virginia Theological Seminary, and Communion Partners.

Portugal and Spain: 11-21 November 2019: Walking the Camino to Spain
'We have a created an inspiring Camino Pilgrimage open to all Episcopalians across Colorado. On this journey, we will experience the life-changing power of walking the Camino, deepen relationships across the Church in Colorado, and deepen our bonds with the Reformed Episcopal Church in Spain. We will encounter God in the awe-inspiring landscape of Portugal and Spain and witness the power of the Spirit revealed in pilgrims we will meet along the Way.'

United Kingdom: 2020: Becket2020
'2020 marks an important dual anniversary for the extraordinary figure of Thomas Becket. It will be 850 years since his dramatic murder on the 29th December 1170 in Canterbury Cathedral, and 800 years since his body was moved on the 7th July 1220 from a tomb in the crypt of the cathedral into a glittering shrine. The events of 1220 were orchestrated to relaunch the cult of Becket, and ensured that Canterbury became the principal pilgrimage destination in England and one of the major pilgrimage sites within Europe. Becket2020 is a programme of events developed by partners from across the UK, a platform to commemorate the remarkable life and death of Thomas Becket.'

England: 24 July-3 August 2020: The Lambeth Conference
'The theme for the Lambeth Conference in 2020 is to be "God’s Church for God's World: walking, listening and witnessing together". Details have been announced on a new webpage which went live today. A more detailed website is being designed and will go live later this year.'
