The Anglican Centre has long been established as one of the major organizations promoting ecumenical discourse since it was founded in the 1960s. Now it is looking to the future, hosting an important debate on the priorities for the next 50 years and focusing on what the next generation of ecumenists think are the key issues.

Called The Vision Renewed – What Is Our Ecumenical Future?,  the webinar will be held on December 13 2021 at 7pm Central European Time.

Four young theologians from around the world will form the panel. They will consider the achievements of the twentieth century, especially the consensus that has developed on core issued of belief, and what that legacy might lead to in the twenty first, as well as innovative ideas.

The members of the panel are the Revd Kirsty Borthwick, an assistant curate from the Diocese of St Albans in the UK, who is completing a PhD on the theology of prayer at Clare College, Cambridge; Dr Dorianne Buttigieg, whose doctorate studies were on Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy and teaches Christian unity courses in Malta; Theodora Mavridou, who is a member of the Church of Greece and has studied at the Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, part of the World Council of Churches, attached to the University of Geneva; The Revd Evans Nyamadzawo from Zimbabwe who currently serves as one of the lecturers at the Bear Valley Bible Institute, Zimbabwe. The discussion will be moderated by the Revd Dr James Hawkey, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey and a Governor of the Anglican Centre.
