Bishops will discuss “Leadership and Ministry in a Conflicted World” as part of the journey towards the Lambeth Conference in 2022. 

Bishops of the Anglican Communion are being invited to take part in a new series of Bishops’ discussions in 2022 as part of the journey towards the Lambeth Conference. “Ministry in a Conflicted World” will run online in February, March, and April 2022. 

Through a range of Biblical reflections, films and discussion, the series will offer theological, strategic and practical input on three formational habits that can help to shape ministry and leadership. It will explore what it means to “Be Present, Be Curious, and Reimagine.” 

Then series will continue the “listening phase” of the Lambeth Conference, which is focused on helping bishops pray, meet, and prepare for the full event in July 2022. During 2021, the Lambeth Conference team ran a 6-month series of Bishops’ Conversations, where bishops studied the book of 1 Peter and started discussing some of the conference themes. 

Anthony Poggo, Adviser to the Archbishop of Canterbury on Anglican Communion Affairs, said: “The Lambeth Conference theme is all about exploring what it means to be ‘God’s Church for God’s World’. The world we live in today is complex and divided. Bishops around the world are often leading and ministering in situations facing conflict, challenge, or polarisation. Our hope and prayer for this new series is that it will provide bishops with a space to share and listen to one another, as they learn from each other’s contexts and the challenges they face.” 

The course is being delivered by the Lambeth Conference in partnership with Difference, part of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s reconciliation ministry. The series includes video contributions from theologians and practitioners from around the world whose ministry has been formed in particularly complex and divided situations.
