Anglican Alliance holds European summit to focus on refugee crisis

Anglican Alliance holds European summit to focus on refugee crisis


Gathering from the Anglican and Episcopal provinces of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, this Europe regional consultation, hosted by the Anglican Alliance, will share different perspectives on humanitarian issues and other social justice concerns during its three-day meeting held this week at St Michael’s College, Cardiff.

“Given all that is happening these last months and weeks across Europe, with the plight of the refugees and migrants, it could not be more timely that we come together to consider the role of the local and national churches across the British Isles and Ireland, and into continental Europe,” said the Revd Rachel Carnegie, Co-Executive Director of Anglican Alliance.

The opening panel reflected on the current refugee and migrant crisis in Europe, drawing on the insights of churches within the region.


The Anglican Alliance is a partnership of the provinces of the Anglican Communion focused on development, relief and advocacy

The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe participated in this. Represented by St. Paul’s in Rome: they have the only daytime refugee center in Rome.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
