The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby hosted a major gathering of Anglican Religious Communities at Lambeth Palace on Friday 28 March 2014. 
In this video, participants talk about the Religious Life and their hopes for helping to renew the Church.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby calls for "a wild burst" of Spirit-fuelled imagination about the Religious Life in his address on Friday to Anglican Religious Communities meeting at Lambeth Palace.

In his address the Archbishop says that for Christians is it our life "in contemplation, in prayer and community around a Rule and around worship, that makes us more than an NGO with loads of pointy roofed old buildings."

The one-day conference marked a significant early step towards Archbishop Justin’s vision for the renewal of prayer and the Religious Life (i.e. Christians who live in communities according to a shared 'rule'), which he has declared as a core priority for his ministry.
