Posted Jan 9, 2020

[Anglican Communion News Service] The leaders of 36 of the Anglican Communion’s 40 member churches will gather in the Middle East next week for what has been described as “a very strategic meeting.” The chief pastors of the communion – the senior archbishops, moderators and presiding bishops of the Anglican provinces – will meet from Jan. 13-15  in formal session. A preliminary meeting will be held on Jan.12 for new primates, elected or appointed to their position since the previous Primates’ Meeting in October 2017.

On Thursday 16 January, the primates will take part in separate pilgrimages, beginning together at the site of Jesus’ baptism with a Eucharist and reaffirmation of baptism vows, before one group heads to Salt and Mount Nebo while another crosses to the west bank of the River Jordan for visits to Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
