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

This brief conference, on the eve of the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion, will delve into our broad tradition in a bid to remember and retrieve the best of the past for a faithful future. Inspired by the Anglo-Catholic congresses of the 20th century, young scholars will deliver papers on the holy, catholic, apostolic pattern of Scripture, sacraments, prayer, and the Church herself, formed by God in Christ.'

USA: Ohio, Cincinnati, 12-15 April 2018: Conference of North American Cathedral Deans

USA: Indianapolis, 19-21 April 2018: Missional Voices National Gathering
'a weekend of thinking, planning, and dreaming about the future of missional communities and innovative ministries in the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion.

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.

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

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.'

England: London, 11-16 January 2016: Primates Meeting
'The Archbishop of Canterbury has invited all 37 Primates to Canterbury to reflect and pray together concerning the future of the Anglican Communion.'

London-Paris, 13-27 November 2015: Pilgrimage2Paris
'At the end of November, world leaders will meet at the UN climate talks in Paris. Inspired by their faith, pilgrims from across the UK will come together to call on world leaders to agree a fair, ambitious and legally binding climate change deal in Paris. The Church of England, Christian Aid, CAFOD and Tearfund have come together to organise a Pilgrimage2Paris ahead of the UN talks. The pilgrimage will start in London on 13/14 November and arrive in Paris on 27 November.'

USA: Utah, Salt Lake City, 25 June 2015 - 3 July 2015: The 78th General Convention of the Episcopal Church

USA: New York City, through 27 February 2011: Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam
'Three Faiths includes 200 rare and precious works created over the past 1,500 years. Among them, great works of the miniaturist's art and of calligraphy, drawn from all three faiths, delight the eye, as they have done since their creation centuries ago. Manuscript materials are accompanied by some of the most significant printed works of the past 550 years. The scrolls, codices, illuminated manuscripts, and printed volumes are complemented selectively by important bindings, early photographs, prints, maps, and liturgical or ritual objects dating from the fifth century of the Common Era (CE) to the present.' At the New York Public Library.
