Welcome to the website of the 18th plenary session of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-18).
Plenary sessions of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) take place every two or three years. Representatives from each of the 42 provinces (member churches) of the Anglican Communion are invited to gather together for prayer, worship, Bible study, and discussion on matters of common concern, to promote the unity and purposes of the Churches of the Anglican Communion in mission, evangelism, ecumenical relations, communication, administration and finance.
The Church of the Province of West Africa will host ACC-18 in Accra, Ghana, from 12 to 19 February 2023.
The Anglican Consultative Council is not an international synod. It has no legal power over member churches of the Anglican Communion, which are autonomous and independent-yet-interdependent. The ACC is a consultative body, and one of four Instruments of Communion, or Instruments of Unity, in the Anglican Communion, alongside the Lambeth Conference, the Primates’ Meeting and the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The meeting’s agenda will be focused around the Anglican Communion’s five Marks of Mission, as we approach the 40th anniversary of their first adoption (as four Marks of Mission) by the 6th plenary meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC-6)), held in Badagry, Nigeria, in July 1984.
This microsite has been created to support members of the ACC as they prepare for this meeting.
As part of the registration process, members of the ACC are asked to indicate any language or translation needs. As a result, documents, reports, guidance and official information will be published on this site in English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese. Other languages will be added if required by ACC members.
You can find more details about previous meetings of the ACC on the Anglican Communion website.
