Canon Ulla Monberg at ACC-15


The 15th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-15) has been in session in Auckland New Zealand from 27 October until 7 November. Each member Province/Church of the Communion has from 1 to 3 members on the ACC, depending on the population of the Church. In addition to the 3 members representing the Church of England, the Diocese in Europe has, for the first time, a co-opted member to represent the Europe region. That member is the Revd Canon Ulla Monberg, our Director of Training.

The Anglican Communion Office points out that Anglicans are present in over 165 countries of the world. But 45 of those countries are in our own Diocese in Europe, where our over 300 congregations serve Anglicans and other Christians from Iceland to Russia. So it is very good news for the Diocese that we have our own representation, thus giving a profile to our life and ministry in this international instrument of the Anglican Communion.
 

Canon Monberg has been busy at the meeting, which has a packed agenda dealing with the business of the Communion at the international level, including matters pertaining to mission, theological education, refugees, youth, ecumenical relations and much more. Ulla was the convenor of a group which dealt with the report and recommendations related to Anglican-Old Catholic relations.

It is a time for networking as well, and for sharing experiences and ideas related to the mission and life of the Church, and of course expressing thanks to Archbishop Rowan, on his last ACC as President.

More information on ACC-15 can be found on the Anglican Communion website here.
