The Lambeth Conference is a meeting of bishops from around the Anglican Communion. Beginning in 1867 (at the behest of Canadian bishops), the Lambeth Conference has happened approximately every ten years. It is not a legislative conference, but a time for bishops (and spouses and other observers) from around the world to gather with one another to worship, reflect and meet one another.

The Lambeth Conference of 2022 took place at the University of Kent in Canterbury, Kent, England from July 27 – August 7, 2022 (with the opening and closing services at Canterbury Cathedral.) The Diocese of Brandon was well represented at this conference, with Bishop William, as well as our assisting bishop, the Rt. Rev’d Larry Beardy, in attendance.

In addition to the bishops, we also had another member of the Diocese of Brandon in attendance: Nadia Sinclair, a member of Chemawawin First Nation in Easterville, was one of the stewards at the conference. Stewards of the Lambeth Conference are young people chosen from around the world, and are a vitally important part of the conference. Well done, Nadia! We’re all incredibly proud of you.

The story of the Lambeth Conference of 2022 is best told in photos, and you’ll find a collection of them on this page (as well as on page 6.)
