Anglicanism in the Public Square Conference

Event start date

October 28, 2022

The John Wesley Institute is proud to host “Anglicanism in the Public Square,” a two-day conference open to the public that brings together an international group of scholars and public intellectuals to explore the public and social implications of Anglican history, theology, and ethics for the public square. The Anglican tradition, from Britain to the Americas, Africa and beyond, has inspired social movements and political figures for centuries.

From English and British monarchs driven by an Anglican vision, evangelical Anglican abolitionists, many of the founding fathers of the American republic, the social witness of Bishop Tutu, and bishops in the House of Lords today, Anglicanism has engaged the public square across the globe.

This conference will explore the question of what Anglicanism, historically and in the contemporary setting, brings to the public square, to the formation of just societies, and to the search for a common good. In an age of fragmentation and partisanship, the Church has a different narrative, a different approach to questions of common life and work. Join us as we explore what Anglicanism has to offer for dialogue, discourse, and disagreement in the public square.
