Archbishop of Canterbury Honours German Bishop

Tonight I attended a dinner hosted by the Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace to honour Bishop Wolfgang Huber, the bishop of the Evangelical Church of Berlin-Brandenburg and President of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD). The Nikaean Club sponsored the dinner. The Nikaean Club has over 350 members and was formed in 1925 to further relations with non-Anglican Christian churches, and to offer hospitality on behalf of the Archbishop of Canterbury to representatives of such churches.
The Church of England has an agreement of eucharistic hospitality with the EKD, the Meissen Agreement, signed in 1988. The Reverend Simon Hobbs, chaplain of Bonn and Cologne, is our diocese's representative on the Meissen Commission.

More information on the Meissen Agreement can be found here.
