Bi-lateral meeting between the Bishops' Conference and the Church of England House of Bishops


Bishops from the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales and the Church of England House of Bishops will join together for a bi-lateral meeting at Hinsley Hall, Leeds on 14-15 November, 2006.

This meeting will be fraternal in character, based on shared prayer, dialogue and a desire for further development of our common Christian witness.

The meeting arises from the recommendations of the Anglican – Roman Catholic Joint Preparatory Commission in Malta, which took place in 1968. These were subsequently incorporated in the mandate of IARCCUM, the International Anglican – Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (Communion in Mission, Mississauga, May 2000).
