Chair: Most Revd Dr Barry Morgan
Secretary: Revd Jean Mayland

We share the anxiety of many in the Anglican Communion about its future. MCU is committed to a Church which is open, inclusive and welcoming to all. This conference will consider:
- the nature of Anglicanism, in the UK and overseas
- what Anglicanism has been in the past and is now
- Anglicanism from a critical and Free Church point of view
- the role of the Communion in the world today
- the proposed Covenant and its implications.
