The Archbishop of Canterbury today wrote to all 37 Primates inviting them to attend a special Primates’ gathering in Canterbury (11-16 January 2016) to reflect and pray together concerning the future of the Anglican Communion ahead of the next Lambeth Conference scheduled for 2016.

The meeting would be an opportunity for Primates to discuss key issues face to face, including a review of the structures of the Anglican Communion and to decide together their approach to the next Lambeth Conference. Primates are encouraged to send in contributions to the agenda which is likely to include the issues of religiously-motivated violence, the protection of children and vulnerable adults, the environment and human sexuality.

Your prayers would be most welcome given the pronounced tensions that characterise our life together internationally.
