The Anglican Alliance

The Anglican Alliance exists to connect, equip and inspire the worldwide Anglican family to work for a world free of poverty and injustice and to safeguard creation.

The Anglican Alliance was born of the 2008 Lambeth Conference and is an initiative of the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Anglican Communion. The Anglican Alliance is mandated to bring together development, relief and advocacy work across the Anglican Communion. It connects with churches and agencies right across the Anglican Communion. Above all, the Alliance belongs to everyone in the worldwide Anglican family committed to working for a world free of poverty and injustice.

Our work is grounded in the Anglican Five Marks of Mission, which include responding to human need and caring for the most vulnerable, challenging and changing the unjust structures of the world, and sustaining and renewing the life of the earth. This holistic engagement with the world reflects Jesus’ mission to bring good news to the poor, release for the oppressed and fullness of life to all (Luke 4:18; John 10:10), and humanity’s role to “tend and keep” the earth (Genesis 2:15). see more about the Five Marks of Mission in the Theology section.

Uniting with churches and agencies around the Communion, the Anglican Alliance seeks to serve as midwives of hope as we pursue a Kingdom vision that is about good news of the kingdom, abundant life for all and the flourishing of all God’s creation.
