The Lambeth Conference 2020: The Past and Future of the Anglican Communion
A Lecture by the Canon Theologian
With the Lambeth Conference of all the Bishops from the Anglican Communion coming up next summer, it seems like a good idea to look at the history of the Conference and, more importantly, about what it’s for nowadays and how it relates to the Church of England both nationally and locally. Since 1998 the Conference has revealed the huge and apparently irreconcilable tensions across the Communion over sexuality. Some are predicting that 2020 may even be the last Lambeth Conference! The Revd Professor Mark David Chapman, Canon Theologian at Truro Cathedral will nevertheless try to offer his own thoughts about plotting a route through the current difficulties – “we have after all solved apparently irreconcilable differences before and we can probably do so again.”
Friday 6th December, 7pm for a 7:30pm start.
