Forward in Faith and Anglican Catholic Future are delighted to announce a major conference in September 2018 to promote, renew and deepen Catholic mission in the world.
The following is a joint statement from the Chairman of Forward in Faith and the Chair of the Executive of Anglican Catholic Future:
As a commitment to the mutual flourishing of the different integrities of the Catholic tradition within the Church of England, the executive committees of both Forward in Faith and Anglican Catholic Future have jointly planned a major conference in September 2018. The conference will be called ‘God’s Church in the World: The gift of Catholic Mission’. In working together we are demonstrating that mission and evangelism are priorities for the future growth and wellbeing of the Church. We see the Church primarily as a gift from God to the world in every possible area of life. As priests and pastors of God’s people, our duty and our joy is to demonstrate and prove our engagement to our communities.
We believe that we have much to learn and share in our common approach to Catholic mission in the Church of England and as such we are delighted to bring together a wide range of scholars, practitioners and thinkers to enable us to deepen and renew our part in the growth of God’s Church in this country.
Confirmed speakers include Bishop Rowan Williams, the Revd Dr Alison Milbank, the Ven Luke Miller, Bishop Philip North, the Revd Canon Dr Robin Ward, the Revd Canon Anna Matthews amongst others.
We invite all those in the ordained ministry, members of religious communities and ordinands to join us in London for three ground-breaking days in September 2018.
