Anglican Consultative Council
The Anglican Consultative Council, which is chaired by the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams, will meet in Auckland from Saturday 27th October till Wednesday 7th November.
This will be Dr William’s last major international engagement before he retires in December. The Archbishop will also visit Waikato and Christchurch, while other delegates will preach in 32 cathedrals and churches across the country on Sunday, November 4.
Media accreditation is required for all events and locations. Please note, it is organisations to be accredited, rather than individuals. International media follow a different process. The ACC will meet each day at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell and regular media briefings and conferences will be held there. There are also other key events to note including:
Friday 26th October: Unveiling of the headstone of Bishop Sir Paul Reeves at St John’s College in Auckland. The Archbishop of Canterbury is taking part in the service.
Saturday 27th October: Powhiri/Grand opening event, 10am at the Telstra Events Centre in Manukau with a combined church schools’ kapa haka party from Auckland, Waikato and Hawkes Bay. There will be a forum for school students to ask questions of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Sunday October 28: Opening Eucharist at Holy Trinity Cathedral Parnell, with Archbishop of Canterbury preaching.
Thursday November 1: Visit to Kingitanga in Ngaruawahia.
Saturday November 3/Sunday November 4: Mission Encounter Weekend. Archbishop of Canterbury visits Christchurch. Other ACC delegates will visit cathedrals and churches across the country. (For details of locations, please contact Jayson Rhodes.)
Monday 5th November: Presidential Address by Dr Rowan Williams.
