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

USA: Washington, D.C., 21-25 May 2018: Festival of Homiletics

USA: Georgia, Savannah, 2 June 2018: Annual Mass and Meeting of the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament

USA: Texas, San Antonio, 11-14 June 2018: Association of Anglican Musicians Conference

USA: Pennsylvania, Ardmore, 12 June 2018: Liturgy: What's Really Going On?
'As Episcopalians, we find ourselves committed to, and enjoying, our liturgical heritage to greater and lesser extents. We know that liturgy does good things for us. It gives us an identifiable form of worship, a distinct identity. At its best, it prevents the ills of "cult-of-personality" leadership, and even forms genuine human community. But what if there is more? What if the liturgy is real? What if it is the very thing that places us most in touch with what is most deeply true about God, the world, and ourselves? If we entertain this possibility, how might such a realization affect our participation in, planning of, even reform of the liturgies we inherit? Join Dr Nathan Jennings as he presents the relationship of liturgy to reality and invites discussion of its concrete implications in our liturgical lives as Episcopalians.'

USA: Virginia, Alexandria, 16 June 2018: Banquet and Annual Meeting
'The 2018 Banquet and Annual Meeting of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church will be held on Saturday, June 16 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Refectory of Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia. The banquet is open to the public.'

USA: Connecticut, New Haven, 18-21 June 2018: 'Full of Your Glory:' Liturgy, Cosmos, Creation
'The conference will explore ideas of creation and cosmos embedded in the worship life of the church at a time of unprecedented attention to ecological and cosmological concerns. Conference speakers will highlight some of the rich traditions of the past (ritual, visual, and musical, among others) and also address contemporary concerns. The broader aim of the conference is to offer the resources of the liturgical tradition – and its particular insights – to the ongoing conversations around ecology and cosmology. It will become clear that liturgy has always been about more than human beings at worship: specific understandings of creation and the cosmos are in fact at the heart of all Christian worship.' Rowan Williams is keynote speaker.

England: Mirfield, 23 June 2018: Grand Auction
'Another Grand Auction is to be held at Mirfield, this time to raise money for the Community’s campaign for the future. This will be the fifth such auction and will be conducted, as before, by George Gribben a popular and entertaining auctioneer from Belfast. He is the brother of Fr John Gribben, a member of the Community, who will be organising the auction at this end.'

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

England: Oxford, 9-11 July 2018: Totus Christus: Knowing and Loving the Son of Man
'The purpose of this conference will be to examine some of the many registers of the mystery of Christ, both historically and thematically. The title ‘the Son of Man’ also evokes the different aspects of the whole Christ: the humanity and divinity of Christ, his earthly ministry, his sacramental presence, and the eschatological consummation of his work. It is also a term of relationship, suggestive of both the relations constitutive of the life of the Holy Trinity, and also of the way that our knowing and loving the Son of Man is always an invitation to communion - with the Triune God, as the Body of Christ, and for the life of the world.'

USA: Wisconsin, Nashotah, 16-20 July 2018: Church Musicians Workshop
'an intensive five-day residential program which combines the liturgical experience of Nashotah House Theological Seminary with the expertise of renowned veteran church musicians to create a vehicle for professional development and personal enrichment'.

'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.'

USA: New York, Greenwich, 1-3 October 2018: Worship the Lord in the Beauty of Holiness
'Once again the Sisters of St Mary and Christ the King Center will offer an ecumenical conference with speakers from several denominational settings to address to topic of Holiness in personal and corporate life. Look for inspiring talks, uplifting worship from varied settings and challenging discussions on the role and witness of Holiness in contemporary life.'

Past events

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.'
