26 July – 8th August 2022
ARNA is calling all Australian Anglicans to pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the bishops of the Anglican Communion who will be gathering in England this July for the 15th Lambeth Conference.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, asks: “Please pray that as we meet and consider our shared mission and ministry, that we may hear the call from God. In turn, that we might add our voices to call others to make a difference for Christ in the world.”
The Lambeth Conference is a once-a-decade gathering of bishops from across the Anglican Communion for prayer and reflection, fellowship and dialogue on church and world affairs. With the theme of ‘God’s Church for God’s World – walking, listening and witnessing together,’ the conference will explore what it means for the Anglican Communion to be responsive to the needs of a 21st Century world.
Please pray especially for the ministry of the international team of Lambeth Conference chaplains, led by our Australian Anglican Franciscan brother Christopher John SSF.
ARNA is organising local prayer vigils in cities across Australia in the week before the Conference begins. For more information contact the local ARNA coordinator in your area.
A daily prayer guide for the Conference, prepared by Anglican religious communities from around the Communion, is also available at: https://www.lambethconference.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Lambeth-Conference-Prayer-Guide-2022-ENG.pdf
