Seminarians/New Clergy

The Anglican Pilgrimage

A conference for Seminarians and Clergy in the early years of their ministry.

We have learned that we have far more in common than the things that divide us, and we are determined to stay together.

The conference programme focuses on the rich traditions of cultures and contexts of mission and ministry in the Anglican Communion.

Guided by an international faculty, students are encouraged to share their own experiences of the Anglican Communion and reflect on these against the background of the life and worship of Canterbury Cathedral.

The conference has two pillars:

  • Academic input and group reflection on ordained life and ministry
  • Participating in the pattern of prayer at the Cathedral.



The conference aims to enable students to explore the rich diversity of ministry within the Anglican Communion. Students come from all over the Anglican Communion and have an intensive experience of community life during their time in Canterbury.

The overall purpose of the conference is to broaden horizons by discovering the strength of Anglicanism as a living communion in a diversity of cultures. Course credit may be available for this programme for US and Canadian students, by arrangement with your college.


Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, we regret that the Conference for Seminarians and New Clergy intended for 2021 has been postponed. The ongoing uncertainty surrounding the global health situation means that we are not at present naming new dates, but are keeping future possibilities under review.
